Since 1966 The Foley Art Center has served the Gulf Coast area with our Cultural Enrichment Programs in the local schools, Grants to Art teachers of area schools for ages 4-18 and art classes for children and adults. From the dreams of fifteen local citizens, it has become a vital force in the Cultural Development of Baldwin County. Our annual events include, since 1967 on the second Friday of November, our six weeks, Annual “Trim-A-Tree” Holiday Arts, Crafts & Gifts Show is held at the Tanger Outlets. Since 1971, each Mother’s Day weekend, “Art in the Park” a fine juried Arts and Crafts show held in the John B Foley Park in downtown Foley, AL.
The proceeds from our Art Center consignment sales, membership dues and projects allow us to implement our Cultural Enrichment Programs in the local schools. This has continued to be the main focus of the Foley Art Center. We sponsor outstanding performances and special events in the Foley area to eleven schools with over 5,000 students. This is in addition to our Art Grants Program to local Art Teachers at our area schools.
We would deeply appreciate your support of our growing organization. Without you, none of this would be possible. The Foley Art Center’s continued growth and progress has only been realized through the steadfast support of caring businesses and individuals such as you over the past forty plus years. Please join us in our quest of making a true difference by creating one of the finest enrichment programs possible.
