Lake Nona Art Tour
Art is in our DNA
At the heart of every good community is a blend of arts and culture. 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 kick back, relax, and be inspired by work from some of the most iconic artists of our times. In Lake Nona, arts and culture are truly part of our DNA.
Lake Nona Sculpture Garden
The Lake Nona 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.
Situated in Laureate Park near Canvas Restaurant & Market is “Glass House,” a stunning work of installation art conceived and constructed by Brooklyn-based artist Tom Fruin. It utilizes reclaimed materials and pulls cues from sustainable urban design and American folk art, all while eliciting the spiritual qualities of stained glass.
The Beacon and Code Wall
At the heart of Lake Nona’s Town Center stands “The Beacon and Code Wall” by Lake Nona resident and public artist JERFE. “The Beacon” is a six-story landmark that comes to life at night with a visual experience of video, music and interactive elements. Alongside stands “Code Wall,” an installation of specialized dichroic glass with imagery and messages written in binary code.
When Lake Nona sought an artist in 2018 for this project, Cecilia Lueza’s winning entry certainly caught our eye. “For this piece, I wanted to incorporate that Florida vibe and also capture the dynamics of everyday life and create a sensation of movement with shapes and color,” said Cecilia.
Disco Dog Sculpture
The 35-foot tall stainless steel sculpture was designed by local Lake Nona artist JEFRE. The sculpture was inspired by Lake Nona, with the fractal, reflective surface replicating the water/waves of the community’s namesake – Lake Nona. The sculpture is meant to welcome residents and guests as they enter Town Center.
Lake Nona Sign & Prismatic
The mural’s cascade of color transforms the utilitarian chiller plant into an instagram-worthy artistic display. The mural designer, Carissa Bloemeke, was inspired by a deconstructed prism. The picture-perfect “Prismatic” mural plays off of the visual where interacting light creates a spectrum of different colors.
Pixon Art Scene
We’re proud to introduce you to the trio of talented artists behind the latest art installations located throughout Pixon, Lake Nona’s newest apartment community. Their custom artwork created with printed digital artwork, chalk and spray paint can be admired from the outside and inside.
leAD Art Scene
Printed wall art designed by Carissa Bloemeke in the 5G Accelerator co-working space. The art is inspired by circuit board patterns found in technology, and geometric patterns taken from acceleration graphs.
Global Angel Wings Project
Colette Miller created the Global Angel Wings Project in 2012, in the streets of Los Angeles, the “City of Angels.” They were painted to remind humanity that we are the angels of this earth. Colette has painted wings globally and right here in Lake Nona Town Center.
Lining the exterior of Pixon’s second apartment building is “Brain Freeze” Another bold piece designed by Carissa Bloemeke, the 9,000-square-foot mural gives the building the appearance of varying height and colorful emerging towers, creating a skyline that differs from the architecture of the building.
Created in Argentina, the sculptures were all made from re-used materials in the region. Measuring 10-feet high and each weighing in at 600-700 pounds, the artist Vanessa Mazza was inspired by the nature and wildlife native to her home in southern Argentina.
