The Maitland Art Center was founded as an art colony (called the Research Studio) in 1938 by visionary American artist and architect André Smith (1880-1959). This tradition continues at MAC today, with gallery exhibitions, resident artists (Artists-in-Action), a strong curriculum of art instruction in an intimate atmosphere, and community programming. Visit this historic, aesthetic gem set in the middle of busy, growing Central Florida. The Maitland Art Center is the repository for a number of significant collections, including the artworks of the Center’s founder, visionary artist and architect Jules André Smith (1880-1959). Smith’s career as an etcher, painter, and sculptor is celebrated in perpetuity at MAC, the center of the artist’s activity in his later years. The architecture of the MAC is in itself a monument to Smith’s vision: he designed and actually carved much of the imbedded sculpture throughout the grounds.
