ABOUT

 

Gallery500 was founded in 2019 from the desire to create a space that celebrates Daytona Beach’s local culture, budding local art scene, and contemporary art on a national scale. Part of Daytona’s local culture is the importance of auto racing in all forms as well as the beach that was dubbed the “World’s Most Famous Beach” since the 1920’s. Gallery500 combines the quality and presentation of a fine art museum with the approachable and friendly nature of a local art fair by showcasing new artwork every two months and hosting a variety of community-oriented events and activities.
