Nestled into Loch Haven Park, OMA features its private collection and traveling exhibits, but is best known for its 1st Thursday socials.

Redefine Gallery
29 S. Orange Ave.
407-648-7060
redefinegallery.com
A tiny space within the CityArts Factory, Redefine is the area’s most reliable purveyor of cutting-edge graffiti and street art; a room that small requires a choosy curator.

smponline.org
Yes, it’s way out there in Daytona, but photography lovers know it’s worth the hour-long drive to the coast to visit this space. Just about every angle of photography gets explored in the expansive institution with multiple galleries of national and international works.

Twelve21 Gallery

UCF Art Gallery
University of Central Florida

Parking can be tough, but its faculty and student shows feature innovative modern works that make it worth any minor hassles.

Urban ReThink

407-704-6895
urbanrethink.com
The space that was once Orlando’s only independent bookstore is now a vibrant multi-use space curated by the Urban Think Foundation, filled with readings, experimental music, art, film and creative
thinkers.

Wells’ Built Museum of African American History and Culture
511 W. South St.
407-245-7535

Housed in a historic hotel near the erstwhile South Street Casino (the only hotel nearby that would rent rooms to the casino’s chitlin circuit performers), Well’s Built is a trove of African-American artifacts.
