See engaging work from 25 Orlando artists at Friday's Culture Pop! party

  • "Leonardo St. Francis" by Dawn Schreiner

We were lucky enough to attend Participation (the annual Maitland Art Center fundraiser dinner) this year and we’re here to report back that unlike some fundraisers, this one is filled with actual art instead of just boring networking and polite cash grabs.

Each table is hosted by a local artist, who not only decorates it to overflowing with his or her work but also stays to hang out with the guests (and usually sends them home with a small art gift, as well); and throughout the evening there are live art events – dance, acrobatics, live painting, and more. 

However, if you don’t have the ducats for a ticket, you don’t get to see that art (except in your friends’ Instagram feeds) – that is, until now. The Maitland museum complex has pulled together an assortment of work from the artists who make Participation so special every year, and assembled it all in one place for anyone to enjoy.

See work by local artists including Maxwell Hartley, Nathalie Chikhi, Andrew Spear, Dawn Schreiner and many more. And as always at a Culture Pop party, there will be music, food and drink, and a one-night only art installation – this time by Martha Lent. 

See a full list of artists (also below) and more info at the Maitland A&H site.

6:30-9 p.m. Friday, May 29 | Art & History Museums – Maitland, 231 E. Packwood Ave., Maitland | 407-539-2181 | | $5
