In the eternal quest to gorge your eyes with beauty while sticking to a diet budget-wise, the monthly free tours of the Alfond Inn’s collection of contemporary art are a vital new activity. You can wander in and look at the art on your own any time, of course – donated by Rollins alums Barbara and Ted Alfond, the Alfond Collection is an ever-growing body of works by significant contemporary artists, most of which are installed at the hotel (though pieces are rotated fairly often, and sometimes they make their way into shows at Rollins’ Cornell Fine Arts Museum). But on the first Wednesday of each month, CFAM staff
lead a tour of the art, giving insight and background into the works scattered throughout the five-floor hotel. Conveniently, it’s scheduled right around happy hour, and the hotel just so happens to have a cozy little bar offering happy-hour specials … the perfect place to discuss your new knowledge over a drink or two. 

5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2 | Alfond Inn, 300 E. New England Ave., Winter Park | 407-998-8090 | cfam.rollins.edu | free
