See Them Before They Are Gone!

Jan

02

Have you been in to see our Eugene Savage and One in Three exhibits?  If not, you need to stop in before January 8th – this Sunday.

The Eugene Savage exhibition, The Seminole Paintings, is a collection of Art Deco style paintings giving a social commentary on the effects of industrialization on the Seminole Indians and their land.  Along with the exhibition, we also have a number of new podcasts tocomplement it, available on iTunes.  Find out more about the people and culture of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, along with the symbols and meanings behind Eugene Savage’s paintings.

One in Three: Let’s Solve our Dropout Crisis is a photo-documentary exhibit about the dropout crisis in Duval County Public Schools.  The exhibit was organized by local photographer Ingrid Damiani and the Jacksonville Public Education Fund to start a conversation about the problems in our education system, through the medium of art.  The title of the exhibit refers to the statistic that one in three 9th-graders in Duval County do not make it to graduation.

Stay tuned for our next big exhibit in the Mason Gallery – Impressionism & Post-Impressionism from the High Museum of Art.
