Community Impact

The Vero Beach Museum of Art actively works with other local organizations to meet the needs of children and adults, particularly the underserved, in our community. These activities insure the Museum is reaching as many individuals as possible to demonstrate that “art matters.” By working together with community partners to align with their needs, efforts are magnified as each organization fulfills its respective mission.

In 2017-18, the Museum is pleased to be working with and providing programs for the following organizations:

Gifford Youth Achievement Center – Art After School Program

The Museum provides a weekly after-school art program for elementary children as a community partner with the Center, whose mission is to offer quality programs for children of all ages that will develop self-esteem,
teach character, and encourage each individual to reach his or her ultimate potential.

Art For Health’s Sake

Art For Health’s Sake offers a wide-range of carefully guided creative engagements, courses and program activities for adults and teens in the Vero Beach area. These experiences are provided by specially certified instructors, who design the activities with a focus on the process instead of the product, because through this expressive engaging process a space for positive interaction and communication can be achieved. The Museum currently provides off-site programs at Indian River Estates and Senior Resource Association as well as on-site.

The Museum embraces all art forms as beneficial in promoting these processes, including the visual arts, music, creative writing, movement, and the contemplative arts.
