Support the Arts in Homestead, Florida
Art, exotic orchids, music, the love of history, the uniqueness of the Everglades and much more – all are a part of what makes up the arts and culture of Homestead. In 1976, Bea Peskoe, her husband, Irving, and several others knew that the area’s artistic and cultural richness was often overlooked. In that year of the Nation’s Bicentennial, the small group established the Homestead Center for the Arts to promote and bring attention to the talent that extends throughout the community.
HCA, as it is commonly referred to, became that umbrella organization dedicated to highlighting and encouraging all those who share this passion. In linking together with the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, HCA is able to serve as a pass-through agency for small grants for local arts organizations and to provide lectures, music performances, and general support to artistic and cultural expression.
The popular Bea Peskoe Lunchtime Lecture Series delights audiences with favorite topics, and our ever-growing group of affiliate organizations offers something of interest for almost everyone. Only a few examples are the Lamplighters Writers Group, the Children’s Art Gallery, our local museums, and Homestead Community Concerts. We invite you to explore all the pages to find a match for what you enjoy.
