Art in Lake Nona
Masterpieces in Master Planning
Art and culture is the beating heart of any vibrant community, and Lake Nona is no exception. From public art installations and live music to cinema events and access to Orlando’s greatest artistic institutions, Lake Nona offers plenty of chances to get inspired by visual and performance art from some of the most iconic artists of our times. In Lake Nona, art and culture are truly parts of our DNA.
As master planners, Tavistock Development Company recognizes the value the arts play in shaping a community. It’s not just the “hardware” — buildings, roads, and homes — that makes a community. It’s the “software,” too: community events, public art, and live entertainment, that truly activates a space and makes it memorable. And that’s the goal. We want our residents and visitors to feel they belong in Lake Nona.
Lake Nona is now an innovative community known for doing things differently and doing them better. Our art installations and features make sure our residents and visitors have unique, memorable experiences.
It’s no secret that enjoying the arts, whether participating or experiencing them, makes us feel more human. That’s also part of Lake Nona mission: realizing human potential. It’s part of what we do. Studies show that the arts truly affect our health and wellbeing in positive ways, so they play a major part in planning the community. When people engage with art, it stimulates learning.
Our priority is to find the best artists to bring spaces to life and to incorporate not only different artists but different art forms from sculptures, murals, and music to digital art with new technologies like projection-mapping.
Adding to the richness of Lake Nona’s public art program is the all-new Sculpture Garden – an enchanting tropical enclave brimming with lush landscaping and a definitive collection of world-renowned sculptures creating an outdoor art gallery unlike any other. Lake Nona Sculpture Garden is home to one of the most recognized sculptures in the world, the iconic Charging Bull by Arturo di Modica.
Adjacent to the newly opened Lake Nona Wave Hotel, the Sculpture Garden is a 50,000 square-foot outdoor space designed for the exploration and discovery of a distinguished selection of sculptures from one of the world’s largest private art collections, The Lewis Collection.
Lake Nona is home to dozens of art installations that feature different art forms including sculptures, murals, digital art and live performances. To learn more about the artist and inspiration behind each of these unique pieces, simply scan the QR code located on the ground near the artwork.
