Arts and Entertainment

Spend a day celebrating the arts and exploring the fascinating exhibits at the Coral Springs Museum of Art. Located in the heart of Coral Springs, the Museum of Art is one of the most exciting venues for cultural activities.

The Coral Springs Museum of Art opened in 1997, and features an 8,000-square-foot gallery that changes exhibits five times a year. Each exhibit spotlights up to five artists. This organization hosts educational outreach programs that include children’s classes, art camps, artist-in-residence grants and even a “Yoga for Art Lovers” class.

Recent large-scale exhibitions include The Art of Africa, Great African American Legends by Charles Mills, The Art of Haiti, John Whalley’s In New Light and the work of such diverse artists as Deborah Fletcher, Klawdia Proia and international woodcutters Christiansen, Drozda, Ellsworth, Fisher, Mailland & Sengel.

The Coral Springs Center for the Arts books well- recognized acts such as Jon Lovitz, Lee Ritenour with Dave Grusin, Engelbert Humperdinck, Ann Margaret, Peter, Paul and Mary, Don Rickels, Tony Danza, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and shows — including The Sound of Music, Grease and Superstarzz.

In late 2003, the Coral Springs City Commission passed an ordinance creating a new Public Art Program to bring art out of the museum and into the community, on roadways, in front of buildings, parks, city squares and in lobbies.

A wide range of music also fills the air at Betti Stradling Park throughout the year. Your entire family will not want to miss the annual Family Concert Series featuring a variety of bands. The entertainment and parking is free—just bring a lawn chair and refreshments!

In 2009, the city launched a new program titled Coral Springs Experience. This program gives residents and students alike an opportunity to learn about our Community of Excellence, with students earning valuable service hours. The program is open to participants of all ages, and with completed entries they will receive a certificate, an eco-friendly shopping bag and a Coral Springs Experience t-shirt. More information is available at www.CSExperience.org.

There is always something to do in Coral Springs for you and your entire family to enjoy.
