Thirty-One Days of Experimentation and Collaboration

 

A month of collaboration and experimentation unlike anything else in Florida! Join the A&H throughout the entire month of March for Art31! Art31 focuses on the creation of new art, the legacy of the Research Studio’s focus on experimentation and collaboration, and the A&H’s commitment to engaging guests as observers and as participants.

 

The public will experience a vast array of artistic expression and, more importantly, not only be a part of it but, indeed, a necessary and critical part of it.

Art31 is brought to you
by Art & History Museums – Maitland

We engage the public by educating, collecting, preserving, interpreting, exhibiting, and promoting art and history reflective of the American experience inspired by Maitland’s heritage and the legacy of André Smith’s Research Studio.

 

Through our multidisciplinary collections, unique architectural environment, and inspirational programming, we stimulate thought, spark the imagination, enrich the spirit, and foster appreciation in art, historical research, and preservation.

 

Art31 is also made possible through the support of these organizations.
