TOGETHER

Welcome to BIG ARTS and the 2022 season packed with unique films, nationally recognized performing artists, rewarding workshops, stimulating lectures and a beautiful series of gallery exhibits. We chose to call this season a Celebration of Community because BIG ARTS belongs to the Sanibel Captiva community, and never has the word “community” reverberated more deeply in our hearts.  We all miss the precious experience of gathering to share the healing, inspiring and nurturing power of the arts.  The yearning for that experience is what inspired members of our community to create BIG ARTS in 1979. Today we honor their gift to the community and are reminded of the importance of coming together to celebrate and reaffirm the beauty of our shared humanity. We can’t wait to see you at BIG ARTS!
