Artful Perspectives on the St. Johns River

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 to Sunday, October 25, 2015

In collaboration with the Cultural Fusion Year of the River, the Cummer Museum invited Jacksonville artists who work in a variety of media to reinterpret river-themed works in the Museum's Permanent Collection. The Year of the River is an initiative bringing together over 50 institutions to raise awareness of the St. Johns River as the "cultural current" of our city and an important driver for economic development, recreation, tourism, and quality of life throughout Northeast Florida. Throughout 2015 there will be exhibitions, performances, and special events highlighting the importance of the St. Johns River. Participating artists include: Emily Arthur, Sarah Crooks Flaire, Jim Draper, Doug Eng, David Engdahl, Brian Frus, Tiffany Melanson, Hiromi Mizugai Moneyhun, Allison Watson, and Barry Wilson, as well as the team of artists behind the original score, A Vision Awakening.
