UAC is thrilled to announce we are launching a new, multi-year, community-wide project celebrating the history of Collier’s arts!
This initiative is a partnership between United Arts Collier, the state-recognized Local Arts Agency for Collier County, and Florida Humanities, which preserves, promotes, and shares the history, literature, cultures, and personal stories of Florida. With our partnership agreement with Florida Humanities, we need to invest $25,000 in matching funds to support this ambitious initiative that will share, preserve and celebrate the history of Collier County through the lens of arts & culture.

This initiative is a partnership between United Arts Collier, the state-recognized Local Arts Agency for Collier County, and Florida Humanities which preserves, promotes, and shares the history, literature, cultures, and personal stories of Florida. This initiative will invite our community to share their stories and memorabelia to create a Collier Arts Archive that will be the basis for exhibitons, talks, articles, videos, tours, and more celebrating the history of Collier’s arts.

Together, and with the help of our community’s arts and arts-loving organizations and individuals, we will explore how we got to where we are today through Collier’s rich, surprising, and inspiring history of the arts in our community. Enjoy not-to-be-missed artwork and live music from local artists and exquisite cuisines from local restaurants! All proceeds will benefit this new endeavor for the arts.

In collaboration with Florida Humanities, United Arts Collier will document the history, identity, and vision of Collier County through the lens of arts & culture. This ambitious project is anticipated to span approximately 3 to 5 years.
