Board of Directors


From a humble beginning in 1986 through today, the Board of Directors’ work diligently to ensure the success of Central Florida’s Festival of the Arts Scholarships, while successfully promoting our mission.

Our mission is to produce an outstanding juried show for the Lake Mary Heathrow Festival of the Arts, featuring National and International Artists and Contemporary Craftsman, while raising scholarship money for graduating Seminole County High School Students. In doing so we hope to stimulate, energize and foster the arts within our local economy and beyond!
