BIG ARTS, or the Barrier Island Group for the Arts, was started by a group of island residents and artists in 1979. It has expanded every year to offer artistic and educational experiences for all.
The education series features workshops and classes, including the Winter Academy, painting and drawing, fine crafts, photography, discussion and writing, pottery, and music and dance. There is also the FORUM of nationally recognized speakers and the Talking Points series dialogue that encourages audience participation with recognized thought leaders on a broad range of topics.
In addition, BIG ARTS hosts film screenings, art exhibits, concerts and more.
