It was spring of 2013 when all heck broke loose in Naples art world. An announcement was made to an invitation only crowd that Naples beloved “Phil” would now be known as “Artis Naples”.
Artis means- a collection of the arts. Indeed, Naples premier center for the performing and visual arts with performance art halls and the venerated Baker Museum open for your delight September through July.
Still, if you get a phone call from a friend who asks whether you would like to go to the “Phil” tonight? A likely exciting evening is before you if you chose to accept.
* I used a photo that I took in 2008 long before the former name, “The Philharmonic Center for the Arts” was changed to “Artis-Naples”. I did so because James Taylor was the artist being heralded whose music is etched upon my heart.
