ORLANDO, Florida. – The Orlando Museum of Art is offering free admission next week as part of its “Access for All” initiative.

The Orlando Museum of Art, in partnership with the Art Bridges Foundation, offers people of all backgrounds the opportunity to experience the museum for free every third Thursday of the month. This program is part of a three-year grant project to make art and museums more accessible to people across the country, the press release states.

The next event is on Thursday, June 20th.

“We regularly host our Access for All events once a month to demonstrate our commitment to making art accessible to all, regardless of status or background,” said Cathryn Mattson, CEO of the Orlando Museum of Art, in a press release. “Our mission is to create a place where the arts can be universally enjoyed and experienced. We are grateful to have a partner in the Art Bridges Foundation to provide opportunities for all individuals and families to participate in our exhibitions and programs.”

The museum offers tours and live demonstrations to give guests the opportunity to experience art in a variety of ways. In addition to the museum's signature art exhibitions, the event will also present the Florida Prize Contemporary Art, which features the lavish works of 10 local artists and will be on display through August 25.

During this month's Access for All initiative, there will be additional programming, including hands-on activities from the Orlando Science Center for students and families starting at 4 p.m. These interactive sessions will focus on topics related to Earth, space and science fiction.

In collaboration with the Enzian Theater, the Orlando Museum of Art is also hosting “La CinOMAthéque” and offering a free screening of “La Jetée.” The screening of the 1962 science fiction film directed by Chris Marker will feature guest speaker Jimmy Schaus, medical director of Student Health Services at the University of Central Florida.

“Art has the power to change our perspectives and bring us together in new ways,” said Coralie Claeysen-Gleyzon, chief curator of the Orlando Museum of Art, in a statement. “Through free admission and exciting programming, we hope to ignite the community's love of art and foster meaningful connections to our exhibitions.”
