BIG ARTS is a vital part of Sanibel and Captiva and our islands’ quality of life. While we made the painful decision to cancel our 2023 season, rest assured BIG ARTS staff are busy working behind the scenes planning programs on and off the island so that we can all experience the healing power of the arts.

We are passionate about preserving our community and this special place we call home. The future will be bright and we look forward to throwing open the doors to BIG ARTS to share, heal and be inspired by the strength of the human spirit!



Loyal annual donors are the backbone of BIG ARTS, allowing us to deliver on our mission to always inspire, enrich and delight while providing ongoing financial sustainability. Annual donors like you build a solid base of dependable yearly income, allowing us to keep a balanced budget while planning for the future.


Whether a show, film or exhibit, your sponsorship offers an array of wonderful benefits and high visibility customized to your needs.


BIG ARTS special events are an incredible opportunity to connect with friends and neighbors and meet new people with the stunning backdrop of the BIG ARTS galleries and sculpture garden. The centerpiece of our season is our Annual Benefit which features a blockbuster entertainer, fine food and drinks and dancing in the Sculpture Garden.


Creating a legacy at BIG ARTS in perpetuity is a wonderful way for generations to come to recognize those that made a profound difference and to assure BIG ARTS sustainability and vitality.
