ABOUT ARTSUNITED

Experience Art

ArtsUnited, Inc. is a nonprofit arts organization founded in 1999 in response to a growing need of local Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) artists for an interactive and supportive working environment. Our organization focuses on showcasing the art of the LGBTQ community in all genres of the arts, including visual art, music, theatre, film and fashion.

We implement our mission by producing programs and events that present our member artists and promote the development of culturally diverse arts. We collaborate with other organizations in South Florida to maximize the cultural offerings for our members and patrons.

Over our more than 20 year history, we have become one of the most renowned LGBTQ arts organizations in Florida.  We are proud to continue providing quality cultural programming.

Our member-based programs provide artists with opportunities to showcase their work and talent, and network with fellow artists.
