If you would like to become a director, visit us and pick up a potential director packet with an application.  There is more information about CityArts directorship in the packet.  Monthly dues are projected amounts; when income does not equal expenses, directors contribute to cover the shortage.  We encourage you to visit the co-op during open hours, visit the CityArts website and facebook page, and contact any Creative Director via phone or email. We will be happy to give you a tour of the facility, discuss how CityArts can meet your needs, and answer any questions you may have.  Keep in mind, CityArts is what we make it.  It is ever-changing to meet the needs of the directors and the community.

  1. I was downtown yesterday and was looking for your CAC and went to the visual art gallery. The girl at desk did not know where you were located so I did not get to visit:( Suggestion, leave biz cards at the arts center or inform them of your location. Thanks! A friend told me about you. Wasn’t sure of your name either so didn’t come up in google.

  2. Is your organization a 501 c 3, not for profit designation by the State of Florida and the IRS? Is there a published list of your active directors? Is there a published calendar of events? Thanks.
