The new interactive arts program will take place the third Sunday of every month

Free admission day at the Center is getting a boost thanks to a grant from PNC Arts Alive! Free Arts! Family Days brings interactive arts activities, expanding upon the current Free Admission Day program offered for contemporary visual arts exhibitions presented on the third Sunday of each month.

“We’re excited that PNC’s generosity has allowed us to offer this wonderful program to families,” said Joy Satterlee, executive director, Art and Culture Center/Hollywood. “It’s a great opportunity for people of all ages to connect to and benefit from the arts by participating together in hands-on activities that encourage education, communication, cooperation, and fun!”

Free Arts! Family Days focuses on the four key pillars of arts education: visual arts, dramatic arts, dance/movement, and percussion/music. Subject areas such as science, literacy, history and cultural studies will be incorporated into each Free Arts! program date.

“We depend on our cultural sector to attract tourism, spur our economy, and educate, which is why PNC has a long history of partnering with arts organizations that strengthen the lives of Main Street communities like this one in Hollywood,” said Cressman Bronson, PNC regional president for Florida East while presenting the grant. “Through PNC Arts Alive, we are increasing arts access and engaging people in new and innovative ways. Now, the Art and Culture Center will be able to offer families a variety of unique and free programs that showcase South Florida at its best.”

Details of activities offered on the remaining dates offered on the third Sunday of each month will be announced soon.
