Marion Cultural Alliance was established in 2001 and takes pride in providing a great experience to our customers, members and community. Known for its inaugural effort and first public art project, Horse Fever, our non profit organization has given over $300,000 in grants to our growing arts community. The gallery is just another place where we’re able to showcase Ocala’s talent and continue our mission; to champion, convene and create opportunities for the arts. We’re so happy that YOU are a part of bringing our mission to life. Thank you!

Although every effort will be make to maintain a safe environment, the basic responsibility for health and safety rests with the individual. All volunteers should conduct their work in a safe and healthful manner.
