This is the time of year when the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park opens its doors for free every Friday evening – Special Friday Nights at the Morse!!
The free events planned for this Friday night include live music by Beautiful Music Three Flutes at 5 p.m., a family tour of the galleries at 5:15 p.m., an art demonstration by Orlando artist Sandy Lent at 6 p.m., and a curator’s tour of the exhibition “Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Laurelton Hall” at 7 p.m. Enjoy one of these activities or just stroll around this magnificient place on your own. Admission is free from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
North Orlando’s Thurston House bed & breakfast in Maitland offers wonderful accommodations, and are located just over 2 miles away. Check in around 4pm, relax and refresh, enjoy a complimentary cheese & beverage snack at 5pm, then head over to Special Friday Nights at the Morse! There are many dining options up and down Park Avenue in Winter Park, or come back into Maitland for a wonderful dinner at Antonio’s, Francesco’s or Rangetsu. Wind down your evening by sitting on one of the porches sipping your complimentary peach schnappes. You may just catch a glimpse of an owl flying by as last nights guests did. They loved hearing the distant hoots of thesw neighbor birds. Our setting in the middle of 8 acres of wooded land gives us the feeling of being many miles away, yet we are close to everything.
