Best Dinner With an Artist 


Art & History Museums – Maitland, 231 W. Packwood Ave., Maitland, 407-539-2181,

If you’ve ever fantasized about being able to ask your favorite artist all about their inspirations and processes, this annual spring fundraising dinner at the Maitland Art Center is probably the closest you’ll get. Most of them aren’t famous (yet!), but the handful of artists who host tables at Participation are unfailingly gracious, funny, warm and interesting. Each table is decorated with a different artist’s work, and during dinner they discuss how and why those pieces were inspired. Before and after dinner, guest can wander the museum’s beautiful grounds observing art in action all around them – it’s a midsummer (well, spring) night’s dream.
