Nancy Turrell, Executive Director of the Martin Arts Foundation tells The Rickie Report,” Treasure Coast residents are sincere and sophisticated lovers of the arts. And when we say “arts” we mean everything in the visual arts, performing arts and culinary arts.  Local residents, as well as visitors, have helped elevate the culture of our entire area”.

VISIT  Artists At Home Pages:




Back in 1988 when ArtsFest first emerged, the arts were a fledgling component of our community. Today, 34 years later, the arts community is thriving, despite the massive curve ball COVID-19 has thrown at the arts and cultural sector. ArtsFest gives us a chance, each and every year, to show up and demonstrate our support for the arts in Martin County.





So if you can’t join us at ArtsFest to show your support in person this year, join us at ArtsFest at Home! On this virtual event site, you can watch performances, check out the culinary arts, make a donation or purchase art from an artist. Together, show our support and solidarity with the goal to keep the arts alive and well.



See   you   at   ArtsFest!
