Gift of Folk Art to the Dr. Phillips Foundation

June 24th, 2015

Folk art makes a great gift! We were so pleased when Carter Jones, District VP for the YMCA of Central Florida selected Pat Juneau's Tower of Children to present as a gift to the Dr. Phillips Foundation. The colorful stack of playful children is such a fitting expression of the YMCA's mission for youth development.

The tower will reside in the lobby of the Dr. Phillips Foundation as a show of gratitude from the YMCA for all that the foundation has done to support them.

Shown here are Dan Wilcox (L), CEO and President of YMCA of Central Florida presenting the Tower of Children sculpture to Ken Robinson, of the Dr. Phillips Foundation.

A Visit from Charlie Lucas

We were thrilled to host The Tin Man, Charlie Lucas from Alabama for his Florida debut show on Friday, May 22. With a lush coffee table book published by The University of Alabama Press, Charlie spent time signing books and embellishing the endpages with animated doodles. On Saturday morning, we heard story upon story of Charlie's childhood and the people who have influenced his art. His show will be up through June 21.
