Three Masks is a uniquely appointed venue in downtown Orlando. Visitors are likely to lose their breath upon entering this artists’ space. The combination art gallery, event venue and gift shop holds treasures directly from the continent of Africa that include tribal masks and sculptures. Owner/Operator Timothy Babatunde-Tokunbo Adebule is often found sharing colorful stories from the continent and Nigeria, his home. Three Masks hosts an event every last Saturday of the month called “Art Talk.” It includes food, arts and crafts, live music and an open mic for folks to showcase their talents. On Friday, August 17, 2018, Three Masks will host Afrobeat Paint, Wine & Snack from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. Visit the website at for event schedules, details and marketplace.

The Ms. World Pageant at DPAC (Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center) provides a unique opportunity for all contestants to network, develop, and share their skills and talents while creating impact in their own businesses and communities.   The pageant will be held on Saturday, August 11th in the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater and promises to inspire!

Go off the beaten path and check out the Mennello Museum of American Art at 900 E. Princeton Street. Through August 12th the museum features Jiha Moon, an artist who gathers cultural elements that are native to China, Korea, and Japan and then fuses them with Western elements to examine the multi-faceted nature of our current global identity. Admission to the museum is quite the bargain at $5.00 per person. Go and treat the senses.
