The Orlando Foundation for Architecture hosted the 2nd Annual OFA Art Show, which took place at the Orlando Museum of Art. The art show was open to the public according to new safety guidelines set by the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA).
As the Orlando Foundation for Architecture promotes public understanding and appreciation of architecture and design, art with a theme related to “Architecture and Design” was encouraged, but not required. The OFA hosted an online auction through our website running for two weeks before the show, for the art indicated for sale.

Friday, October 30, 2020

How do we initiate a culture in architecture studios that allows students to share experiences, raise awareness, and promote understanding in their college experience? Equity in 2020 requires more than a Diversity Statement. Administrators and Students come together to discuss how we create accountability for inclusion that brings a significant change to the mindset of traditional studio settings on college campuses.
