This permanent endowment will provide income to support the operations, staffing and maintenance of the new art center that features a large exhibit gallery, artist studio space and additional art programs for children and adults.

The Art League of Ocean City’s mission is to promote the visual arts in the Ocean City area through education, exhibits, scholarship programs and community arts projects. Operating out of small former pool house since 1984, the Art League is the sole resource for art education and fine arts exhibits in Ocean City. It serves the entire spectrum of the community from children to senior citizens.
