Terry Olson’s self-imposed title at the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs for Orange County is “Chief Arts Instigator”. It is a position he has held since 2001 when he was hired to create the office. Olson has overseen several investment programs for the arts, the development of a public arts program, and the development of an arts education program. The Orange County public art program has installed permanent public art in a dozen government buildings including the internationally recognized “Under Magnitude” at the Orange County Convention Center. They have also developed the Sculpture on the Lawn program that brings different large sculptures to downtown Orlando for year-long loans. Olson has seen the arts community grow artistically, financially, and in its audience reach and diversity.
