In 2014, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts was inaugurated right in the heart of Orlando's downtown. Since then, the expressively illuminated structure has become an iconic downtown presence as a bright beacon that signals the city's enduring commitment to the arts.

This museum also features an $8.3 million J. Hyde Crawford collection of commercial drawings of luxury fashion, bequeathed in 2014. One of the single most important gifts in the museum's history, the collection is featured in its own gallery, entitled Crawford.

Big-city cultural events and museums are commonplace within Winter Park's historic, small-city elegance. First stop is the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, aka the Morse Museum, for viewing the largest collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
