DELAND — The popular annual Off the Beaten Path Florida Arts Tour will be held Saturday and Sunday, February 25-26, 2017, inviting curious art enthusiasts to follow a map and explore behind the scenes into the lives, studios, and featured work of professional Central Florida artists. The Tour draws families, tourists, curators, and commissioners of art from around the country and is now being called a “cultural adventure” after writer for Visit Florida and author for National Geographic, Gary McKechnie, coined the phrase in an article he entitled, “Florida’s Artistic Treasure Hunt”
Studios and other participating art institutions will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb.25 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26. Unlike the typical art festival event, the Off the Beaten Path Tours feature esteemed professional artists whose artworks are seen in public government buildings, hospital lobbies, resorts, and banks, as well as in parks and tourist destinations.
