Opening Night Reception for Art in the Chambers and Sculpture on the Lawn

Orange County, Fla. –   On Monday, February 17, 2020 the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Office will unveil the latest Sculpture on the Lawn and Art in the Chambers exhibitions. The public is invited for a reception from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to meet and celebrate the artists as well as hear some interesting tidbits about the art. The reception will be held at the Orange County Administration Center, located at 201 S. Rosalind Ave. in Orlando.

The Orange County Administration Center’s Sculpture on the Lawn Program showcases five new and dynamic sculptures. One of these sculptures was created by Dorothy Gillespie, a renowned painter, sculptor and artist with many works in Central Florida. As 2020 is the centennial of her birth, the Sculpture on the Lawn program is proudly celebrating and honoring Gillespie at the Opening Night Reception.

In partnership with Orlando Museum of Art, four new pieces are displayed within the Orange County Administration Center and the Orange County Board of County Chambers for all to see, free of charge, Monday through Friday during normal business hours, through June 26, 2020. Orlando Museum of Art has had some of its collection displayed in the Board Chambers since June 28, 2019.
