November 28, 2014- "The Art of Escape" 


Humans have always needed an escape from reality, so let's celebrate escape: books, games, plays, T.V., movies, music, dance, poetry or whatever allows you to unplug, unwind and enjoy a laugh or cry. From Tom Thumb to Tom Petty, a game of charades to Game of Thrones, Dr. Seuss to Dr. Zhivago, Monty Python to Monty Hall- where does your escape come from ?

The Sanford Art Walk is an art gallery tour around Downtown Sanford occurring every fourth Friday of the month from 6-9pm. In conjunction, The Historic Sanford Welcome Center is proud to host Central Florida's only month long juried art show with both a "Best in Show" award chosen by a panel of judges, and a "People's Choice" award chosen by the attendees of the show.   


This is an opportunity for hundreds of people each month to attended a highly promoted event, which involves participation from local galleries and businesses. 


The Art Walk has a positive economic impact on the community and demonstrates how the arts contribute to the economic viability and promote a vibrant community. Please join us and several of Downtown Sanford's art galleries and other local artists in promoting the Sanford art scene. This event is free to the public and will be held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The mission statement of the Historic Sanford Welcome Center is to enrich the Sanford experience by serving as a communications hub, and operating as a welcome center to provide education and information marketing Sanford as an arts, culture, recreation and historic destination.
