Our board members believe the Arts, and its many forms- visual, literary, performance- have the power to bring people together, to inspire an
exchange of ideas, and to help nurture creativity in all disciplines including science and technology.
Art Does It believes, through creativity and innovation our community benefits, and it will be
our Board’s goal to encourage artists and innovators to consider the former welcome center as a
home for the expression and exchange of ideas, through on-going art exhibits, collaborative
programming with educators in the arts, environmental sciences, technology and more;
traveling Art Does It arts exhibits to areas where the Arts are dearth, public art projects on
Dauphin Island and beyond, and the welcoming of the arts and innovators from places, without
borders, to Dauphin Island.
