Fine Arts for Ocala, FAFO, has agreed to match the fundraising efforts of the Magnolia Art Xchange in the amount of up to $65,000 for the 2017 calendar year. The matched funds will assist MAX in reaching its capital campaign goal of $130,000 to be further matched by the City of Ocala for renovations of Ocala Union Station. Funding will enable MAX to transform Ocala Union Station into a hub for the community’s visual artist, providing studios and a creative space for the artists to collaborate and grow in their endeavors.
FAFO is honored to partner with MAX and join in their efforts to support artists and art education experiences for our community. FAFO has brought the Ocala Arts Festival to our community for the last 50 years and our partnership with MAX will only further our mission of providing opportunities for our community to experience Fine Art.
Fine Arts for Ocala is also excited to join the City of Ocala in their efforts to support MAX through this matching grant. The City of Ocala has been extremely generous of their support to FAFO for both of our events, Ocala Arts Festival and the Mother’s Day Symphony Under the Stars.
