The Town of Oakland invites visitors to explore its joint history and art exhibition: “Old Town Road” and “Land, Water, Air” at the Healthy West Orange Arts and Heritage Center.
Local Florida artists will display artwork that celebrates movement and transportation on roads, waterways, trains, cars, bikes, boats, planes, and more in the vibrant “Land, Water, Air” display.
While browsing art, attendees will have the opportunity to dig deeper into the stories behind Oakland’s historic street names, as part of the “Old Town Road” history exhibit. Explore Oakland’s history of thriving citrus groves, industrial center, and social hub of Central Florida through the lens of the major players of Oakland’s past, featuring historic photographs and artifacts. In 1886, the Town of Oakland was platted in a uniform square of roughly ten blocks. Simple street names remained for 86 years, until 1972, when the streets were renamed to honor those who put the Town on the map.
The exhibition will run through Aug. 26. The Center, located at 126 W. Petris Ave., is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. on the 4th Fridays.
