Art in Public Spaces

The former A+Art Program has evolved into two separate Visual Arts Programs: Special Exhibitions at The Foster Gallery and Art in Public Spaces. The Foster Gallery is proud to produce shows featuring original work by CAA’s member artists on a quarterly rotating basis. Visit our Artist Resources page for current Artist Calls and more information about upcoming show requirements and details.

The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) in partnership with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Alys Foundation, and Visit Florida join two of South Walton, Florida’s most beloved attractions – the arts and the Gulf of Mexico – with the introduction of The Underwater Museum of Art (UMA), North America’s first underwater permanent sculpture exhibit.

The UMA is the first presentation of the CAA’s Art In Public Spaces Program and will augment SWARA’s mission of creating marine habitat and expanding fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, cultural, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors in South Walton.

Another exciting Art in Public Spaces addition is our recent #ArtMatters Public Art Exhibition at Hyatt Place, the newest hotel project to break ground in Grand Boulevard’s Town Center. The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) and Howard Hospitality invited visual artists to submit 2D works to be displayed through the Hyatt Place’s construction phase.

#ARTMATTERS at Hyatt Place

The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) and Howard Hospitality invited visual artists to submit 2D works for consideration to be displayed in the #ARTMATTERS Public Art Exhibition at Hyatt Place, the newest hotel project to break ground in Grand Boulevard’s Town Center.

A total of SIX works were selected, printed onto high-quality vinyl and incorporated into the Hyatt Place brand message along the front-facing perimeter fencing of the Hyatt Place site throughout the construction phase of its development. Additionally, the original works were unveiled at the #ArtMatters Public Art Exhibition Reveal Party at The Foster Gallery and displayed at the gallery throughout the public art exhibition.
