ABOUT THE TOURS

Off The Beaten Path Florida Arts Tours are grass roots events created by a federation of practicing artists and community patrons with shared purpose and vision…

Mission Statement

To showcase and increase awareness and appreciation of Central Florida’s finest professional and emerging artists, as well as cultural institutions that are “off the beaten path.”

Vision Statement

To be recognized both nationally and internationally as a premier cultural adventure for art lovers and collectors by offering fine work for acquisition while providing educational and interactive experiences in working studios. Social, cultural and economic development connections between the artists and their communities support the Tour slogan: “Community, Camaraderie & Commerce”.


*A professional visual artist is defined as “a skilled practitioner in the visual arts possessing serious intent and ability, with an original self-conceptualized body of exhibited work which has been recognized by institutions, critics and peers as being of professional caliber.”
