Artway to Haven

Catch 22 EventsCentral Florida Monthly Magazine, D.W. Events Management, and Gateway Orlando presented a monthly art stroll at the HAVEN Orlando Nightclub (6651 S Semoran Blvd, Orlando, FL 32822),  called “Artway to Haven.” It was held every 4th Tuesday from 5pm to 9pm. There was a smattering of tents set up in the empty parking lot. A guitarist and percussionist set up at the far end of the lot to perform.

The press release promised that this was, Orlando's newest art stroll, located at the upscale and off-the-charts-cool, Haven nightclub on Semoran. Patrons could enjoy the mind-blowing, inspirational and surreal artwork of local artisans and sculptors, while experiencing live music. Admission was FREE and open to the public. Food and drink was available from Haven Orlando. A highlight was wine and cigars.

Personally I found it a bit sad that experiencing art and culture in Orlando needs to be relegated to empty parking lots. This event has gone the way of the Dodo bird and is now extinct. With my sketch done, I left the parking lot as the sun set.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
