This museum is in Eatonville, just a few minutes west of Maitland, the first African-American town to be incorporated after the Civil War. It showcases works by artists of African descent during five six-week-long exhibits each year, with one reserved for up-and-comers. The museum is named after former resident Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960), a writer, folklorist, and anthropologist best known for her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. This is the home of Zora
Fest, a street festival and cultural arts and music event celebrating Hurston's life, which is held each year in late January.
