Arts & Culture The quality of life in Florida’s Heartland is enhanced by a diversity of cultural amenities. Right here in Sebring and Highlands County, art exhibits, art shows, crafts fairs and performing arts presentations contribute to a lively cultural atmosphere. Highlands Art League offers a multitude of classes in painting, sculpture and crafts for all ages. The annual Fine Arts and Crafts Festival in November in Downtown Sebring draws attendees and vendors from around the state and nation. HAL also hosts an Artist of the Month reception the second Friday of each month, often coinciding with special downtown events. In addition, Highlands Museum of the Arts, which neighbors Highlands Little Theatre, has an ongoing schedule of art exhibits. The Heartland Cultural Alliance is another group for artists, featuring a gallery with rotating exhibits at the Sebring Regional Airport. Located near the center of downtown is the Allen Altvater Cultural Center, which encompasses MOTA, HLT, Sebring Public Library and the Sebring Historical Society. Performing arts and live theater are well represented by HLT, an organization of committed volunteers who present the highest quality in musical, variety and dramatic theater on a year-round schedule. Local directors, actors and musicians combine skills and talents to provide performances equal to those found in larger metropolitan areas. 16 Welcome to Sebring Highlands Museum of the Arts Kile Brewer
