The art scene on Marco Island got a lot brighter this weekend. Specifically, the headquarters building of the Marco Island Center for the Arts received a makeover Saturday, with volunteers applying a splashy multi-colored paint job on the formerly white building.
Over two dozen volunteers came out to lend their support, their brushes and rollers, transforming the plain vanilla gallery on Winterberry Drive to a tutti frutti palette of colors reminiscent of Italian ceramics.
