Vero Beach Museum of Art, the largest cultural arts facility of its kind on Florida's Treasure Coast, is a precious cultural gem that is admired and appreciated by residents and tourists alike. Situated on 7 acres of Indian River County's 26 acre Riverside Park on the east bank of the Indian River lagoon, the accredited art museum and educational institution provides the opportunity for the cultural enrichment of the public through exhibitions, explorations in the humanities through programs of lectures and seminars, offerings in the musical, cinematic, and dramatic arts, and the collection, preservation, and presentation of important art with emphasis on American art and Florida artists.

The public is encouraged to participate at the museum through an array of educational offerings ranging from casual encounters to intensive studies in the arts. Its curricula of over 150 accredited classes offered each year to 1,500 students in conjunction with Indian River Community College, establishes the institution as the largest school within a museum in the State of Florida.

This renovated and expanded 55,412 sq. ft. arts facility features five art galleries, sculpture garden, and education wing that includes seven studio classrooms, an art library, seminar rooms, and a 3,800 sq. ft. outdoor studio and foundry, a 250-seat state-of-the-art auditorium, museum store, and exceptional public spaces for art installations and public programs.

The Vero Beach Museum of Art programs are sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Arts Council.
