Art in Public Spaces Program

The former A+Art Program has evolved into two separate Visual Arts Programs: Special Exhibitions at The Foster Gallery and Art in Public Spaces. The Foster Gallery is proud to produce shows featuring original work by CAA’s member artists on a quarterly rotating basis. Visit our Calls To Artists page for more information about upcoming show requirements and details.

The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) in partnership with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Alys Foundation, and Visit Florida will join two of South Walton, Florida’s most beloved attractions – the arts and the Gulf of Mexico – with the introduction of The Underwater Museum of Art (UMA), North America’s first underwater permanent sculpture exhibit.

The UMA is the first presentation of the CAA’s Art In Public Spaces Program and will augment SWARA’s mission of creating marine habitat and expanding fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, cultural, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors in South Walton.

Another exciting Art in Public Spaces addition is our #ArtMatters Public Art Exhibition at Hyatt Place, the newest hotel project to break ground in Grand Boulevard’s Town Center. The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) and Howard Hospitality invited visual artists to submit 2D works to be displayed through the Hyatt Place’s construction phase.
