Orlando Museum of Art to Host Free Access for All Event This Month

The Orlando Museum of Art is partnering with the Orlando Science Center and Enzian Theater to host a free event as part of their Access for All program. The event, which takes place every third Thursday of the month, will feature live performances, guided tours, and collaborations with local arts organizations.

This month’s event, happening on June 20 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., is specifically tailored for cinema connoisseurs and science fans. The Orlando Science Center will bring their STEM-centric Family Nights to the museum, while Enzian Theater will offer a free screening of the classic black-and-white sci-fi film La Jetée as part of their La CinOMAthéque collaboration with the museum. Additionally, attendees can experience the Florida Prize showcase featuring new Florida visual artists.

The Access for All program is funded by the Art Bridges Foundation and aims to decrease financial and transportation barriers to art outreach. The Orlando Museum of Art is one of 64 museums participating in the foundation’s pilot program, providing opportunities for all individuals and families to engage with exhibitions and programs. SunRail riders can present their ticket at the museum’s Visitor Information desk to receive complimentary fare to and from the museum from AdventHealth Station to the next Access for All event.

“We are thrilled about this partnership with the Art Bridges Foundation,” said Cathryn Mattson, CEO of the Orlando Museum of Art. “It’s important that we create a space where art can be universally enjoyed and experienced.” Attendees can subscribe to Orlando Weekly newsletters and follow them on various social media platforms for updates and information about upcoming events.
