The Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers is an experiment in pure quality. Hosting such events as the annual Pride Parade, the Rocky Horror Picture Experience, and Arts on Tap, they spend a lot of time preparing things for you to love them, and they do a pretty good job at it.
“Most of these yearly events have planning sessions and brain storming up to a year prior, it’s key to get the event just right because we’re not going to put on something we’re not proud of,” Jessica Wisdom, Director of Development and Marketing for the Alliance of the Arts said.
With rotating galleries, like the current Dia De Los Muertos, or the Spanish Day of The Dead, they asked artists to make hyper personalized Sugar Skulls for the show. This happens several times a year with varying themes, depending on the season.
“We try to do things fresh, we want the gallery to have its own personality at any given point,” Desiree Demolina, the Communications Manager for the center said.
Attending Arts on Tap, the group’s main fundraiser in its second year, was an experience unto itself, the house was almost packed to the brim, and people seemed perfectly happy about it.
With two one night only brews from Palm City and Point Ybel and catering from Cristof’s On McGregor, Judi Mae Cookies, Pretzel Crisps, Small Cakes Fort Myers and University Grill, it’s something to look forward to.
