Best Art Hair 

Flora Maria Garcia

Flora Maria Garcia

CEO, United Arts of Central Florida

Just looking at her accomplishments, you might expect the head of United Arts, who's been in the job for five years now, to be a buttoned-down bore. After all, she's head of an organization that helps raise and divvies up $4.4 million to more than 70 local arts organizations each – that's some serious math. But you'd be dead wrong. Born in Havana, Garcia favors dresses in bright colors and patterns, statement jewelry, and sports a nifty blonde streak in her curly mane. Subverting the maxim, she's all party in the front, but it's all business behind that forehead.
