Participating Locations
Passport to the Arts

Florence is an art lover’s destination. The galleries of Florence present art that is unique to the Oregon coast, inspired by our ocean, rivers, dunes, bridge and wildlife.

On the second Saturday of every month, Florence residents and visitors alike celebrate the art community by visiting our galleries, sharing wine, stories and enjoying the variety of new art pieces showcased at each location. Festivities get underway at 3pm and go to 5pm. That means you can browse the hotspots around town before heading to dinner and enjoying some more shopping!

Art lovers will be delighted to find that art is not just confined to galleries in Florence; it is everywhere you look, with several pieces of original public art on display in prominent locations through the city. Thanks to our Public Arts committee, Florence
will be home to several new pieces of original public art starting in 2018.

To help you navigate all the Florence art community has to offer, when you visit any of the locations featured in this passport, be sure to collect a sticker for the entry form in the back of the booklet. You’re eligible for prizes once you collect all 10 stickers.

Enjoy your Florence Art Passport adventure.
