Arts for ALL Day is a new, must-see event for all Central Floridians, with a focus of introducing new communities to local arts and cultural organizations throughout Central Florida.
The event was created by United Arts of Central Florida and will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017, from 10:00AM – 4:00PM at Loch Haven Cultural Park in Orlando. Arts for ALL Day is a FREE, family-friendly, taste-of-the-arts style event, taking place in Loch Haven’s multiple theaters and indoor and outdoor exhibit spaces, throughout the Mennello Museum of American Art, Orlando Museum of Art, Orlando Repertory Theatre, Orlando Science Center and Orlando Shakespeare Theater venues.
“We’re very excited to bring everyone in the community together for Arts for ALL Day,” said Flora Maria Garcia, president & CEO of United Arts. “Arts for ALL Day’s tagline is ‘Arts Unrestricted’ and that’s exactly what we intend to accomplish with this free, family-friendly event. This is an opportunity for everyone to come learn about and experience the diverse variety of high-quality arts and cultural offerings that are available throughout Central Florida, all in one day and in a single location.”
More than 60 local resident artists and cultural organizations, representing a diverse variety of art forms and genres, will offer special mini productions of their work so that attendees will be able to enjoy a wide range of cultural experiences throughout the day. Each participating artist and organization will have up to 45 minutes to showcase abbreviated arts performances. Lobby and outdoor spaces will also have more informal “pop up” experiences as well as art exhibits. There will be a children’s area with hands-on arts activities and shows, babysitting services, hands-on arts activities for adults, and a diverse range of international food trucks.
