Artist Re­treat

Where Orlando - - Museums+Attractions -

Built in 1937 as a quiet colony for artists to ex­er­cise cre­ativ­ity and col­lab­o­ra­tion, the Mait­land Art Cen­ter is one of the South­east’s only re­main­ing ex­am­ples of Mayan-re­vival, fan­tasy ar­chi­tec­ture. Mary Cur­tis Bok, wife of Bok Tower Gar­dens’ cre­ator, was one of the artists who worked there. The hid­den gem just north of Or­lando was re­cently rec­og­nized as a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark. Open daily, 11 am–4 pm. 231 W. Pack­wood Ave., Mait­land, 407. 539.2181, www.ar­tand­his­tory.org
