center of attention building2The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center was once just a dream. Now it’s reality. The events presented at the SBDAC breathe economic and cultural life into our community. Our impact extends beyond the arts to quality of life, education, employment, and volunteer opportunities. Our vibrant “Center of Attention” generates revenue for public and private sectors through focus on non-arts activities.This is demonstrated through the rebirth of Fort Myers’ historic downtown River District. We are now an arts destination! 

On behalf of the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center board of directors, staff, and volunteers, we welcome you to enjoy our incredible programs. We want to enrich the lives of all who choose to experience what we have to share. Please get involved and help us spread our educational opportunities and outreach programs throughout the community. 

As we look to the future, our final phase of work is to create a rooftop sculpture garden and reception area. We hope you will play a leadership role in helping us complete this final achievement. 

Congratulations to all who have helped make this dream a reality!

From our CEO, Jim Griffith

“As a native Floridian principally raised here in Southwest Florida, I developed an early appreciation for the arts through our public school system. It was there I had my first experiences with live theater, ballet, and orchestra, experiences that launched me into a career in the arts. This inspiration took me all the way to The Juilliard School and right back here to Southwest Florida. We must never lose sight of the tremendous impact the performing and visual arts can have on the quality of life for everyone, especially our future generations. Fostering imagination and creative thinking helps children connect to themselves and their cultures. The arts can speak directly to their dreams and aspirations.”
