About the Hernando County Fine Arts Council

Our mission is to encourage, promote, and support all the creative arts in Hernando County and provide a means to showcase the arts. The Hernando County Fine Arts Council was created in 1987 by the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners as authorized by the Florida Statutes. We are a 501(c)(3) organization made up of 15 dedicated volunteers. Art in the Park, our signature event, brings fine art, crafts, and music to thousands of Hernando County residents and visitors. Art in the Park also gives artists and crafters an opportunity to show and sell their work.

When you give to the arts, the entire community benefits. Please support the 36th annual Art in the Park! Net proceeds from Art in the Park allow the Council to invest in groups bringing art to Hernando County through its Community Arts Grants. In the last three years, these grants have engaged more than 30,000 people in the arts. New this year, the Arts in Education program offers grants to art teachers in schools. The Council also sponsors events such as the Bandshell Bash Celebrate America! 4th of July event and offers walking tours of Brooksville's Historic Murals.
