The Maitland Art Center
The A&H’s Maitland Art Center was founded as an art colony in 1937 by visionary American artist and architect, André Smith (1880-1959). His legacy continues with contemporary art exhibitions in the galleries, two residency programs for professional artists, art programming, and a strong curriculum of art instruction in an intimate atmosphere. The Art Center is one of the few surviving examples of “Mayan Revival” or fantasy architecture in the Southeast, which is one of the main reasons it was named the first National Historic Landmark in the four-county area of Central Florida.
The A&H’s Maitland Art Center offers a more immersive and intimate experience than a static museum, and encourages visitors to take a closer look at the artists and the artistic process. Visit this historic, aesthetic gem set in the middle of busy Central Florida.
