A little history

TITUSVILLE ART LEAGUE, INC.
(1967)

The embryo of the idea of the Titusville Art League was conceived and became a reality through a group of fifteen enthusiastic would-be artists attending evening adult art classes at Titusville High School.

It soon became evident that there was a need to extend its scope to foster and encourage art and its appreciation, and make it available to all. With this purpose to pursue, the Art League was organized and its officers elected. The first meetings were held at the Episcopal Parish House. The members held a sidewalk art show and sale and sold lifetime memberships at one hundred dollars each to raise funds to acquire a building from those discarded from Merritt Island. With the cooperation of the school board and the city fathers, the Art League building was planted in 1961 on its present location at Park and Draa. It was dedicated in May 1962,

Meetings are held the third Wednesday evening ofeach month October through June, giving interesting and educational programs -- open to all interested artists. A regional Art Show is given each spring, usually in conjunction with the Arts Festival. The Titusville Art League was incorporated in 1962 and later became affiliated with the Florida Federation of Art.
