“The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce values Cultural Connection’s contribution towards building a strong community via the arts. Their efforts give
our area greater visibility as not only an amazing destination for visitors, but adds to a way of life we all enjoy. The artsHOP event in November kicks
off this focus with a season of island arts and culture - shedding colorful light on our beautiful surroundings by inviting people to stroll through our
galleries and businesses. It is a wonderful weekend of art, music, food and fun. Thank you Cultural Connections for enhancing the beauty of our area and
making it enjoyable for all to see.”
