Meet Lee County’s newest online directory and calendar by clicking your browser to www.leeculture.org. This online site provides individuals an opportunity to search local events, read arts-related news and get a glimpse into the arts, culture & attraction scene of Lee County. LeeCulture.org is the Lee County Alliance of the Arts, Arts & Attractions map gone on-line.

Browse the events calendar for everything from street festivals and art shows to major concerts and other exciting activities. Visit the online directory to search for galleries, theatres, art organizations, artists, museums, special attractions and more. LeeCulture.org is the most up to date collection of information and is ready to be explored.

Visitors can even take a virtual tour of Lee County’s cultural landmarks, public art works, local attractions and special events by browsing through the online photo gallery.

The site officially went live May 4 and is published and developed by Lee County Alliance of the Arts in partnership with Southwest Florida Community Foundation and Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau.

Lydia Black, Executive Director of the Alliance, is excited that “leeculture.org will provide the locals and tourists alike an opportunity to browse community cultural events and happenings while also serving as a conflict buster among the nonprofit community. The site will showcase artists and arts organizations, will host a comprehensive calendar of events and will serve as the online space for the community to learn about all the arts and culture happenings around Lee County.”

Soon all visitors to Lee County will find a link to LeeCulture.org when booking hotel rooms, searching the web or visiting any major arts and culture related Web site.

Check out the new site LeeCulture.org, save it to your favorites and frequent it often to learn about the arts and cultural attraction scene that Lee Count has to offer.
