The Outer Banks is our other home and our special place for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. It is a place of family memories and an expanding rainbow of friends.
OBX magic is what we call this divinely created place where nature is the protagonist and humanity a supporting character. A magical place where God writes a new chapter with each ocean sunrise in the east to the sound-side sunset in the west. The exploration and preservation of this story is why we created this fund.
The beauty, diversity, accessibility, and power of the visual arts to capture and transmit the story of OBX magic is consistent with our hopes for the future.
