Arts & Culture Alliance

Our mission is to connect people to the arts and to each other,
working to facilitate and nurture the creation, development, promotion
and education of arts and culture in Okeechobee County.
       


The Arts & Culture Committee of Okeechobee Main Street has been a leader in the arts, for 13 years!

The arts and cultural programs we support inspire creativity,
learning and strengthen the fabric of our community. 

In 2005 Okeechobee Main Street decided to take an important step of developing more programs and activities to enhance the Arts and Culture of Okeechobee. The Okeechobee Main Street Arts and Culture committee was formed and their overall objectives were set up.

In May of 2018, the Board of Okeechobee County Commissioners, Okeechobee Main Street was designated as a Local Art Agency through a resolution as out-lined by the State of Florida statutes 265.32.

Local Arts Agencies provide services, support, and programs for arts organizations, artists and their local communities.  Local Arts Agencies’ mission is to inspire participation in and a passion for the arts in their local communities.

Okeechobee Main Street Arts & Culture Alliance of Okeechobee County was formed and is a non-profit organization with a 501(c)3 status through the IRS and is supported in part by the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts & Culture and the Board of Okeechobee County Commissioners, as well as private donors.

 Commissioners Terry Burroughs and Bryan Culpepper presented the official Okeechobee Main Street
LLA resolution to OKMS Arts & Culture Director Bridgette Waldau and OKMS President Angie Griffin.
