Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville & Jacksonville Jaguars Announce Artists Selected for Miller Electric Center Works by artists from Northeast Florida and beyond adorn the team’s new sports performance center.
The Cultural Council's mission is to enrich Northeast Florida by investing in arts and culture. Our three main areas of focus include:
The Cultural Service Grants Program
Support for Individual Artists
The Public Art Program
Arts and culture organizations had to quickly pivot direction last spring. From museum exhibits to theater and dance performances, and more, these organizations worked tirelessly to provide us with virtual instruction and entertainment. As these venues open to new restrictions and guidelines they continue to bring world-class entertainment to the Jacksonville community, online and in person. The video below shares a slice of Jacksonville's thriving arts and culture scene.
