It’s no surprise that Naples is known as the number one small art town in America. Its natural beauty has served as an inspiration for artists of all ages. The city is alive with music, theater shows, museum exhibits, historic sites, and art galleries. Don’t know where to begin? Our Vanderbilt Vacations rentals are centrally located near many of the top art experiences Naples has to offer. Experiencing Naples’ art is essential to understanding our wealth of culture.
Downtown Naples is the art gallery hub. Begin at The Baker Museum located inside the Artis-Naples complex. There are many Picassos and other world-class artworks on display for you to enjoy. While in the area, check out the Naples Philharmonic which is connected next door. The orchestra performs from September through June every year and plays various genres of music. They’ve even performed with famous artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Renee Fleming, and Luciano Pavarotti.
Naples Art Association
The Naples Art Association is a non-profit, educational community for the visual arts. While they are best known for the various exhibitions in their galleries, they also offer over 200 classes and workshops so you can discover your inner artist. Master your craft in painting, drawing, ceramics, mixed media, glass jewelry, and more! The workshop’s difficulty levels range from beginners to advanced, so you’ll never feel out of place. While in town, keep an eye out for special events at the Naples Art Association. They’re a regular host to some of the city’s top annual festivals and events, such as Naples New Year’s Art Fair.
For a more eclectic gallery scene, venture to Third Street South and Fifth Avenue South. Third Street South, shopping and dining district, is Naples’ most romantic and chic shopping area. The area is surrounded by historic buildings, house shops, and delicious eateries. Third Street South features artwork ranging from realistic to abstract paintings. Fifth Avenue South offers a similar experience as Third Street South; although, Fifth Avenue South is considered to be the main street of downtown Naples. This pedestrian-friendly area is lined with shops and art galleries. Perhaps you’ll even find a piece of Naples home with you.
At the end of your art adventure, head back to your Vanderbilt Vacations rental for a night of relaxation.
