The Deering Estate at Cutler has emerged as a thriving cultural art center, fulfilling an enduring dream of the late industrialist Charles Deering, who as an avid art collector, philanthropist, and amateur artist, sought to support artists and create a cultural haven.

Charles Deering's tradition and innovative spirit continues on the Estate today through the Artist Village, a place where South Florida's natural and historic treasures are interpreted through the creative talents of visual, literary, and performing artists. Housed in a unique collection of buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Artist Village has become a cultural hub for exciting collaborative cultural arts programs that include:
