The Mobile Arts Council Arts Directory is a publicly searchable listing of member artists, arts organizations, and venues in the Greater Mobile area. Browse by name, discipline, locations, and more and view current contact details. It is our hope that this platform will provide an all-inclusive arts resource center for the greater Mobile area.
Follow the link below and upload your information today! Once you have submitted, your business or organization will be able to be seen by anyone who navigates our website. Users will find everything they need on the home page of the directory. From easy navigation to a How-To guide, this new addition will provide an easy space for networking and even easier access to the artistic community that we all know and love.
Any questions regarding Directory accounts should be sent to Sydney Cramer at email@example.com or 251-432-9796.

The fourth edition of A Guide to Downtown Art Spaces is now available, listing venues that display original art, both commercial and non-profit organizations devoted specifically to art, as well as businesses for which visual art is an ancillary feature.
The brochure lists each venue’s physical address, phone number, website address and hours of operation. It also features a map showing each venue’s location.
The project has been coordinated by Mobile Arts Council, which hosts a monthly meeting of representatives of downtown art spaces, open to anyone who would like to be involved. Dee Cariglino (dee c. design) is responsible for the look and layout of the publication, and the printing was provided in part by Optera Creative.
