Gulfport has long prided itself on the abundance of creators and innovators who call our artists’ enclave community home. Artists’ studios are sprinkled throughout our colorful neighborhoods. We’re proud to be a community where all feel free to be themselves and the wonderful art created here reflects that sense of freedom.
Gulfport has rich cultural history. Our monthly First Friday Art Walk was the first in the region and both our annual ArtJones Open Studio Tour and Fine Arts Festival draw arts lovers from around the state.
In 2019 the Gulfport Merchants Chamber of Commerce launched Art Works Here, an affordable membership tailored to meet the needs of artists. Art Works Here membership costs only $50 and comes with extraordinary perks, like your own online portfolio space. Come join us — be part of the Gulfport arts community, and its impressive future. Join Here.
