Gorgeous and unusual building
apr. 2020
This art center in Downtown Fort Myers is a 23,000 square foot Neoclassical Revival building built in 1933 on the site of the old fort. The columns on the front are made of limestone from the Florida Keys and the walls are embedded with coral and sea shells. I've never seen anything quite like it; it is very eye-catching!

In 1960, the building was converted into a Federal Court House, but in 1998 it was abandoned. It then suffered a lot of damage and many of the original fixtures were removed or destroyed. In 2003, a not-for-profit organization obtained a 99 year lease from the city and began renovations. In 2007, Berne Davis pledged $1 Million for restoration and the name of the building was changed in honor of the family's contribution. This is when renovation of the first floor began.

By the end of 2008, 10,000 square feet of the building had been restored. Another grant of $650,000 was received in 2012, and those renovations were completed in 2014. The building is currently used for arts education, music lessons, lectures, art exhibitions, and independent film screenings.

The enormous luminaria in the front of the building are lighted at night and are spectacular to see and walk around. They are covered in cut out words that narrate a story, and the words fall on the building and all around.

Its a spectacular building to see and it is wonderful that it was rescued.

I have held an event here and attended several hosted here. The historic building has amazing architecture and the atmosphere is perfect for a casual event or formal event. The food is excellent and the servers are amazing.

Cool Building
feb. 2020
Located in a former post office, then it became a courthouse. Now it's an event center and also art exhibits. Look up at the ceiling and the Caloosahatchee chandeliers.

Lucky me!
feb. 2020
I happened to be visiting Fort Myers on a "First Monday," On First Mondays, the community has an opportunity to see a series of short films, some of which may be selected for the Annual Film Festival. The audience engages in conversation after each short. I enjoyed the interactive nature of this movie night! Surely, this is one reason why I am "lucky."

The other part is that the event brought me to and inside of this remarkable building. There is so much beauty and history in the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center. While waiting for the evening's program to start, I enjoyed reading literature and the calendar of events. I am an out of towner, but if I lived in Fort Myers, I would be sure to frequent this center often!

It is developing as the premier place in downtown Fort Myers for one of a kind cultural events. They have special music and art presentations. They also have a meet the author event monthly during the winter season where an author is asked to speak presenting both a personal background and the background of their most recent publication. It includes a lunch which is tasty and served. Books are also sold at the author event.

Mersey Beatles
feb. 2019 • Venner
A group of seven of us went to the Davis Center to see the Mersey Beatles. The room where the concert was is a lot smaller then I would have expected. It sat maybe 200-250 people. The acoustics were very good and the concert was great. The volunteers that were working were terrific. Friendly and helpful. This is a great place to see this kind of event. Would definitely go to this center again to see other events.

Film festival, concerts (rock, jazz, symphony, local & international), art exhibits, community events, author talks, poetry readings and more. The SBDAC is one of the BEST things about downtown Fort Myers.
