Since 1969, the Dunedin Fine Art Center has strived to create a community space where the arts could be perpetuated and celebrated. In furtherance of its vision to make the Dunedin Fine Art Center a leading visual art center that provides unparalleled education, cultural and creative experiences, the Dunedin Fine Art Center not only curates high quality art exhibits throughout the year, but also offers more than 1,000 class sessions and workshops each year to children and adults.
The Dunedin Fine Art Center currently spans three locations. The main location – located at 1143 Michigan Boulevard, Dunedin FL 34698 – includes six galleries with rotating artist exhibits, fifteen studio classrooms, the Gallery Shop, and the Palm Café. Also at the main location is the unique David L. Mason Children’s ART Museum, which provides an interpretive and interactive gallery space for children and families to explore.
The two satellite locations – the Industrial Arts Campus, located in downtown Dunedin, and the Cottage Campus, scenically located within J.C. Weaver Park on St. Joseph Sound – hold the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s stone carving and wood-working studios and the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s printing press and printing program, respectively. The Dunedin Fine Art Center also offers the exciting outreach program Wheels on Wheels, a mobile clay wheel lab that provides a fun and educational experience for children and the community.
Most recently, the Dunedin Fine Art Center received six Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Awards including “Best Handcrafted Jewelry” and “Best Art Gallery (non-museum)”. Additional information on upcoming exhibits, classes, and events can always be found on the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s website, www.dfac.org.
