Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center




Hours: Mon-Fri 9am-5pm | Sat-Sun closed 

The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center provides unique entertainment throughout the year with captivating live performances in classical, jazz and rock and roll music, theater, and contemporary dance. View independent films, paintings, sculptures and conceptual art exhibitions from local and international artists in the Grand Atrium.  In addition to gallery exhibits, live performances and film, we host annual special events to benefit the Art Center. With your patronage and contributions we can continue to provide premiere art events to Southwest Florida and its visitors and to restore our historic home.

Built in 1933 as a United States Post Office, the newly renovated historic Federal Building has been transformed into an innovative Art Center, while retaining its original architectural beauty. Complete with Neoclassic Revival style columns made of Florida Key limestone, the building attracts visitors who marvel at its stunning architecture, complete with walls embedded in sea-shells and coral formations.
