Space 39 functions as a part-time mini-gallery/part-time club, because it combines both art and nightlife around colorful drinks and an eclectic atmosphere. And though you cannot visit the larger gallery itself while in the lounge, you can still visit with an appointment. The event calendar always presents something different every night, from open-mic to jazz and pop, there is usually something to fit your tastes.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located in the heart of downtown Fort Myers. The center is not just a vibrant forum to hosts art talks, art walks, functional exhibits and much more, but it's also a catalyst and benefactor to the entire art scene in Southwest Florida. Another highlight is the stunning neoclassical design of the building, with its impressive coral and limestone Ionic pillars. The Sidney & Berne Davis should be a definite stop for anyone interested in the local movements and happenings in the Fort Myers art community.
Robert Rauschenberg is sometimes considered as the progenitor of the early 60's Pop-Art Movement due to his work created in the 1950's. Here on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College in the suburb of Cypress Lake, this gallery features all aspects of Rauschenberg's art, from sculpture and photos to paintings and mixed-media. The gallery also presents rotating exhibits from different artists throughout the year as well as posthumously highlighting everything Rauschenberg.
