The new venues are within walking distance of the Fringe's home base of Loch Haven Park. Theatre Downtown, at the corner of Princeton Street and Orange Avenue, is about a half-mile away; The Venue, a new hall at 511 Virginia Drive, is slightly less than a mile from the park.

Arts help Orlando economy: Arts help Orlando economy, study says - Orlando Sentinel

Wed, 08/08/2012 - 18:25 -- rprice

When seven Central Florida counties were factored in, the study showed that the arts contribute $264 million annually to the economies of Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia, Brevard and Polk counties.

Conducted by Americans for the Arts, aWashington, D.C.-based national advocacy group, the study did not measure ticket sales or entry fees, but tallied other spending created by cultural organizations — everything from the groups' rents and payrolls to patrons' expenditures on transportation and baby sitters.

Spotlight on Central Florida: Summer Arts Camps | culturebuildsflorida

Fri, 07/27/2012 - 14:45 -- rprice

All of the large arts organizations in our area have summer camps. The Orlando Repertory Theatre alone has over 50 summer camp offering for students. The Orange County Regional History Center brings history alive with their artistic process. Students – ranging from 5 years of age through middle school – learn about ancient Egypt through maps, mummification and the painting of hieroglyphs. The Orlando Shakespeare Theater is teaching Shakespeare, make-up, history and costuming through an innovative “Zombie Shakespeare” camp. Crealdé, a local visual art center, has a finely tuned model.

Cultural Wasteland or a Football Shangri-La?

Fri, 12/17/2010 - 09:32 -- rprice

I'm a regular reader of the Orlando Business Journal's blogs. As far as I know, they don't post all of their articles online. I get a lot of great info from the blogs though, and they help me keep in touch with my city in ways that I don't get from other publications.

Blunder Bungle (today) an art show inspired by mistakes

Tue, 05/05/2009 - 20:11 -- rprice

I will be doing an (as of yet untitled) digital puppetry / collaborative performance piece tonight as a part of a backyard art showcase. The blunder for me, is that it's 18 hours until the event and I don't have a playable demo! Built with Processing and a Nintendo WiiMote. Come and see what the fuss is all about.
