The Highlands Art League (HAL) was incorporated in 1967 as a 501 c3 by a visionary group that identified the need for an art and cultural entity in Highlands County, Florida that would bring awareness of the visual arts and support for the endeavors of local and regional artists. HAL continues the vision of 1967 with a mission to encourage emerging and evolving artists of all ages and to positively impact our community through the celebration and exploration of the arts.
The Highlands Art League, The ‘Village Where Art Lives’ is located at the Allen Altvater Cultural Center in Historical Downtown Sebring, Florida on the shores of Lake Jackson.
The Village consists of four buildings: The Yellow House Gallery & Gift Shop features studio artists and members’ gallery; the Visual Arts Center houses art classes for children and adults; MoTA features curated exhibits, art competitions and receptions; and the Clovelly House that has been completely renovated recently and will house art classes and programs for teens, as well as visiting artists.
In 1966, HAL started their annual Fine Arts & Crafts Festival, which is one of the longest consecutive art festivals in the state of Florida. HAL has brought thousands of artists, tourists, art lovers and shoppers to the County, as well as continually provides educational opportunities and art exhibitions for the local community.
