New Museum for Florida Art Rising

In 2015 the private art collection of Cici and Hyatt Brown will have a public home for all to enjoy. The Museum of Arts & Sciences, will own and run the new Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, which recently broke ground on a 5-acre clearing framed by a thick patch of woods off Nova Road in Daytona.

“At night this will be a beacon with light glowing out of hidden windows in the lattice,” Andrew Sandall said recently as he toured the site on the north end of his property. “There will be a ceremonial staircase rising up to the mezzanine.”

The architect for this project is the Orlando firm RLF Inc. A few years ago they finished the new wing of the Morse Museum in Winter Park. The museum will salute the Florida cracker architectural style and include a 50-foot peak in the main gallery, as well as meticulous landscaping around the building and retention ponds that will be dominated by plants indigenous to Florida.
