We want to initiate tours of public art in downtown Orlando by sponsoring a fleet of 8 to 10 electric carts that can be used for tours around Lake Eola Park and the Orange County Administration Center to view the growing number of public art sculptures and installations. The inaugural tour will showcase downtown’s public art to approximately 100 public art administrators and artists from around the state who will be in town for an industry conference. The knowledgeable guide will be Terry Olson, director of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs office, with help from SeeArt and members of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Advisory Council’s Public Art Review Board. Once established, these tours could become an opportunity that is promoted to local and visiting groups looking for such an off-beat and arts-rich experience.
