For the Galleries and Sculpture Garden the primary focus is to present thought-provoking, quality exhibitions and programs. Installations reflect a variety of media and represent the work of local, regional and national artists. As an extension of the community-based school of art, the Alice and William Jenkins Gallery, Showalter Hughes Community Gallery, and Contemporary Sculpture Garden are committed to providing educational experiences to students, members and Central Florida’s diverse population.
The Hannibal Square Heritage Center In partnership with the community and the City of Winter Park, Crealdé School of Art will operate the Heritage Center as a tribute to the past, present, and future contributions of Winter Park’s African American community. Through innovative programming in the arts and humanities, The Heritage Center will become a neighborhood focal point, archive, and home to The Heritage Collection: Photographs and Oral Histories of West Winter Park. Through exhibitions and diverse educational programs, the center inspires all Central Floridians and visitors to our area to become more aware of, respect, explore, and participate in their own community’s history and heritage.
