Mission

The Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs is committed to enrich the culture of our diverse community by providing opportunities for artistic expression, education and appreciation in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Vision Values

Our vision is fulfilled through programs in the visual and performing arts. Art builds bridges between communities, generations and nationalities. It serves as a common denominator among all economic groups and stimulates local economies. By instilling individuals with a feeling of self-worth and confidence, art encourages positive attitudes and helps people cope with change. Art can be therapeutic. It opens people's minds to new possibilities and their hearts to new understanding. A catalyst for friendships, art provides a foundation for shared experience.
