The Highlands Art League (HAL) was incorporated in 1967 as a 501 c3 by a visionary group that identified the need for art and cultural entity in Highlands County, Florida that would bring awareness of the visual arts and support for the endeavors of local and regional artists. HAL continues the vision of 1967 with a mission to encourage emerging and evolving artists of all ages and to positively impact our community through the celebration and exploration of the arts.

The Highlands Art League, The ‘Village Where Art Lives’ is located at the Allen Altvater Cultural Center in Historic Downtown Sebring, Florida on the shores of Lake Jackson.
