Our arts community is so supportive of each other. I love it when organizations combine talent, artists and venues to stage a hybrid event, impossible to achieve by only one of them.

Very few small cities can boast of having 3 1/2 fine-arts museums within a few blocks of each other.

One of the biggest benefits of living in a tourist mecca is that millions of people from all over the world come here, including big-name artists, buyers and exhibitions.

When I think of "art" in Orlando, I think of downtown, Winter Park and Maitland and the museums, galleries and events they offer.

It's hard to believe that the Orlando Downtown Art & Living Expo will be seven years old this weekend. It seems like yesterday when I attended the first show near the Lake Eola Park bandshell. This ever-growing outdoor show now takes up the eastern end of the park AND is spilling over onto Robinson Street (where you'll find the juried Madonnari competition). Madonnari are street painters who transform streets and sidewalks into art masterpieces with colored chalk, a tradition dating to the 16th century in Italy. There also will be 200 artists and craftsmen, street performers, children's activities, food and concerts. The free event is Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
