It was the “Age of Aquarius” and man was on the cusp of making “One small step for man, One giant leap for Mankind.” In 1963, the University of Central Florida opened its doors to support the blossoming space program. More than sixty years later, this journey into the unknown sky remains a passion for explorers, engineers and spiritualists alike, and the university has grown to support dreamers of all vocations. In a nod to the university’s history, Celeste Hotel has partnered with the UCF School of Visual Arts and Design to bring this sense of discovery and adventure to the hotel. Each room in the hotel showcases a curated collection of space and celestial-themed artworks created by talented UCF artists.
The UCF Art Gallery is just a short walk away! The gallery serves as a catalyst for visual art experiences and education, culture, and community engagement. Discover year-round exhibitions showcasing, students, faculty and contemporary artists
