Northwest Florida's Champion of Cultural Arts & Arts Education for All

Welcome to Northwest Florida’s premier cultural arts organization. Since 1995, the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) has been committed to cultivating and nurturing a deep appreciation of the arts along the breathtaking Emerald Coast. MKAF operates the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village, providing a central location to celebrate cultural arts in Destin, Florida.
