The Center for Fine and Performing Arts at Seminole State College Presents Little Slices of Heaven on U.S. 27 

SANFORD, Fla. (Jan. 9, 2019) – Little Slices of Heaven on U.S. 27 ison exhibit at the Fine Arts Gallery at Seminole State College Jan. 10-31. The traveling exhibit, produced and curated by Megan Paquette Stepe of the Museum of Florida Art and Culture, focuses on the unique tourist attractions which developed following the construction of U.S. Route 27, the 500 mile Florida highway spanning from Tallahassee to Miami.

Nicknamed the “backbone of Florida,” U.S. 27 served as the state’s principal highway before the construction of I-4 and I-75, bringing new visitors to Florida’s less traveled areas. This led to not only an increased appreciation and ultimate preservation of Florida’s natural wonders, but it also spurred the development of several creative, educational and witty delights up and down the stretch of highway.
