GAL // GUILD FOR ART & LITERATURE
Orange Island Arts Foundation
Founded on July 1, 2014, the name Orange Island refers to the first budding landmass of Florida. As sea levels rose during the early Oligocene Epoch, the island formed south of the Georgia coastline. Just as this tumultuous time period resulted in drastic geographic changes to the region now known as Florida, the Orange Island Arts Foundation seeks to create an arts community rising out of Broward County with the aim for global reach.
