Community Outreach

The Art Club is dedicated to supporting community needs as well as promoting art education. Some of the club's endeavors include:

Artists & materials for the Community Center mural completed and dedicated on January 2013. Thank you to artists Dawn Mill, Judy Burgarella and Christine Thomas for an amazing accomplishment.

The Art Club is responsible for beautifying the downtown wall for the City of Vero Beach located on the eastbound side of State Road 60 one the one way section between Commerce Ave. and the RR Tracks with a Hibiscus Mural. Thank you to Karen Leffel Massingill for her design and all the artists and chair, Sue Dinenno for its implementation.

A new beautification project to add a mural to another City of Vero Beach property at the Bethel Creek House was completed in 2015.

Under the direction of Carol Makris, members painted a bird mural on the north side of the Racquetball building at Riverside Park in 2016.

Provide artwork for "Art in Public Places" which currently provides artwork in the Indian River County Main Library. The artwork is changed on a quarterly basis.

Pictured are some of the children who will participate in the programs along with Alicia Quinn and Rob Slezak, Recreation Director.
