Our Town

Paint the Town

The Orlando we see every day can look strikingly different from an artist’s point of view. With that thought in mind, we asked local artists to submit works that show the city and its surroundings through their eyes. Orlando magazine editors, along with Chuck Dinkins, the facility director of CityArts Factory, chose dozens of their submissions—paintings, photographs, pastel drawings and sculptures—to be exhibited in our seventh annual Paint the Town art show. The free exhibition opens March 19 at CityArts Factory. Here’s a preview of some of the artworks you’ll find there. PAINT THE TOWN EXHIBITION:CITYARTS FACTORYMARCH 19 – APRIL 11, 2009THIRD THURSDAYS PARTY: MARCH 19, 6-9 P.M.

The Life Aquatic of a West Texan

A product of land-locked West Texas, Mark McHugh, 49, grew up as an unlikely prospect to one day get a master’s degree in marine biology and go on to work at SeaWorld Orlando as a whale trainer. At SeaWorld McHugh met and married Diane Godwin, whose grandparents started Gatorland in 1948. McHugh took over the reins at Gatorland in 1996, and he has been a presence in the Orlando-area tourism industry ever since. He is the former chairman of the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau’s board of directors. He and Diane have two daughters, Chelsea and Taylor, and live in Orlando.
