Maitland Art & History Museums

I visited the Maitland Art Center recently and I viewed the “Soldier’s Home: Veterans’ Art in Central Florida” art exhibit. The moving exhibit features local veterans artists: William Gura, Michael Moffett and Jim Hosner. The exhibit provides an opportunity to take a look at the impact of war on individuals.

Note: The exhibit has a graphic nature at the end since it deals with PTSD and veteran suicide. The person working at the museum warned me when I paid which was nice.

The inside museum is small but the exhibits are done well. There is also the Mayan Revival courtyard outside which is beautiful. I explored the Research Studio for artists in residence too. This place is so charming and unique.
