The Public Art department oversees three galleries where rotating exhibits can be viewed; two of these galleries are located Downtown in City Hall.
The Terrace Gallery, open since the dedication of City Hall in 1992, features national and international artists and collections, as well as Florida artists of renown. Movable freestanding walls offer versatility in an attractive 2,400 square foot space that is able to accommodate a number of unique exhibitions. The Terrace Gallery reflects the City’s dedication to the arts and it provides a space where visual artists can share their insight with the community.
The Mayor’s 3rd Floor Gallery is specifically dedicated to Central Florida artists. This beautiful circular gallery space on the 3rd floor of City Hall has ongoing exhibits throughout the year, with each artist or collection on display for approximately three months.
Both galleries at City Hall are free to the general public.
The Garden House Gallery at Harry P. Leu Gardens is also curated by the Public Arts Program. Here a visitor may peruse the halls of this historic landmark and find revolving exhibits displaying fine art of botanical themes as well as permanent works owned by the City.
