Be Part of Something Amazing that encourages Innovations through Art!

The Encinitas Friends of the Arts was formed to support a new arts and culture center for our community.  At the heart of this new development is Art Education for all.  We are prioritizing Communal experiences and Cross sector development. There is a strong need to encourage Innovation by creating a gathering place for both locals and cultural tourists. Help us to activate the much-loved Pacific View site building into a valuable art education resource:

  • Create the economic growth for which the arts are well known.
  • Add value to our community by celebrating 500 artists and 90 arts organizations willing to contribute their expertise.
  • Create new jobs for a state-of-the-art facility
  • Take advantage of state and national funding for the arts as never before to match your donations!

Imagine a place where seniors pass on skills to the young who in turn help their elders learn about technologies. Where the design of a garden is not only for physical sustenance, but for spiritual joy. Where the discarded trash is given new life. Where diversity is celebrated and healing is non-verbal. Imagine an art center full of these small miracles that bring communities together, defines them, makes them stronger. Imagine such a jewel in the middle of our art district, an ace in the hole for prosperity and growth. This is our vision for the Arts and Culture Center Encinitas as a Center for Innovation through Art.

Your donations join those from the City, County and State and will help Encinitas be recognized as a true Cultural District.

Musicians for Art Night Encinitas

As part the EFA partnership with the City of Encinitas Art programming, the EFA raises funds to pay for the musical entertainment for the city’s art venues. These night time events occur every two months on a Saturday.  These events celebrates the city’s diverse visual art scene at participating locations and is free to the public. Conceived by the Commission for the Arts Art Night Encinitas brings focus to our civic art galleries and thriving visual art scene. The bi-monthly art open house benefits artists through the sale of their art and provides the public an opportunity to interact with artists and learn about the creative process. Please give generously to the EFA to support this exciting program.
