Home to the Naples Philharmonic and The Baker Museum, Artis—Naples hosts more than 300 concerts, performances, exhibitions and educational events for children and adults each year in support of its mission to create and present world-class visual and performing arts. In a season that extends from September through July, Artis—Naples offers a broad array of artistic and educational opportunities to audiences of all ages, backgrounds and interests.
In the 2014-15 season, Andrey Boreyko assumes the title of Music Director of the Naples Philharmonic.  Andrey Boreyko is internationally recognized as one of the most exciting and dynamic conductors working today. This appointment marks his first American post. In 2009, Jack Everly was named Principal Pops Conductor and continues today in that role.
The Naples Philharmonic performs over 140 orchestral and chamber music concerts, as well as opera and ballet, education, community and special event concerts annually between September and June in the 1425-seat Hayes Hall, the 283-seat Daniels Pavilion and around the Southwest Florida region. Now in its 33rd season, the Naples Philharmonic was founded in 1982 as the Naples-Marco Philharmonic, and in its first season performed four concerts as a chamber orchestra. In 1989, the then Philharmonic Center for the Arts opened as the home of the Naples Philharmonic and since then the ensemble has grown in scope, size and artistic impact.

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary, The Baker Museum is one of the foremost fine arts museums in Southwest Florida and a reflection of the unique spirit and generosity of the region’s patrons. The Museum hosts several traveling exhibitions annually to complement installations of works from its permanent collections. The internationally recognized holdings of American modern and contemporary art include nearly 3,000 objects and continue to grow. The facility includes 15 galleries encompassing 15,000 square-feet of exhibition space, a glass-dome conservatory, a resource room and a museum store. The museum’s entrance gates were designed by renowned metal artist Albert Paley.
