History

Organization History

The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood was founded in 1975, operating out of a small community space on Hollywood Beach. The Center now manages visual arts galleries in the Kagey Home built in 1924, an Arts School on the same property, and a 500-seat theater in downtown Hollywood. It is one of South Florida’s leading multi-disciplinary arts organizations and impacts, on average, more than 60,000 people each year. The Center was designated a Major Cultural Institution by the Broward County Commission in 2005. It is the third oldest arts non-profit in Broward County. The Center moved to the Kagey Home and adjacent Arts School in 1992. The Kagey Home serves as a cultural landmark for its contemporary gallery exhibitions and for the distinctive character of the building. It is designated by the State of Florida as a significant historical structure and is forever to be held for public enjoyment by city government. The Broward Trust for Historic Preservation honored the Center in 2008 for its stewardship of the Kagey Home. In 1997, the Center expanded its programming to include the performing arts and two years later acquired the contract to manage the 500-seat Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center for the City of Hollywood. In 1999, we launched OceanDance, annually attracting upwards of 10,000 people to free outdoor dance performances on Hollywood Beach from 1999-2009. In 2002-03, we created a formal structure for year-round arts education programming for youth.
