Snap! Orlando presents THE ALFOND INN SUMMER TOUR led by Cornell Fine Arts Museum curator AMY GALPIN. The tour at the hotel will emphasize photography by Carrie Mae Weems, Maria Magdalena Campos Pons, Shimon Attie, and Alfredo Jaar, among others. The Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art at Rollins College is, at once, a collection with a point of view and a lesson in the art of our times, social history, civic mindedness, international affairs, and philanthropy, among others. A work in progress, the collection is the brainchild of Barbara and Theodore Alfond, noted art collectors and patrons of several art institutions …

The curatorial narrative revolves around notions of critical thinking; literacy; enlarging one’s perspective; understanding other cultures and traditions; and language. Barbara and Ted Alfond, along with independent curator Abigail Ross Goodman, have selected and purchased to date over 240 paintings, photographs, sculptures and mixed media works by established and emerging contemporary artists from around the world.
