ANNE FRANK: A History For Today

JAN 13 – FEB 12 | MOSH – Museum of Science & History

This extraordinary exhibition has inspired, informed and mesmerized visitors across the world. Anne Frank is perhaps the world’s best known and most discussed victim of the Holocaust. She was forced to live in hiding with her family in concealed rooms as Nazi forces were sending Jews to concentration camps. The diary she kept is considered one of the most important pieces of writing of the 20th Century and is one of the most read non-fiction works of all-time | MORE INFO…

LIFT: Contemporary Expressions of the African American Experience

NOW – FEB 12 | Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens

Area contemporary artists’ responses to Jacksonville’s rich artistic African American heritage, with an emphasis on creating an artful platform to discuss issues around race, equity, and community. Using the original lyrics to  “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” a song written by Jacksonville natives James Weldon Johnson and John Rosamond Johnson in 1900 for a celebration of Lincoln’s birthday, artists Thony Aiuppy, Glendia Cooper, Ingrid Damiani, Overstreet Ducasse, Dustin Harewood, Marsha Hatcher, Hiromi Moneyhun, Princess Rashid, Chip Southworth, and Roosevelt Watson III created works that present their views about the complex state of race relations in this city and beyond. From literal interpretations of the lyrics to more abstract emotional responses, these new works inspire, challenge, confront, and uplift, giving a contemporary view to the words and social relevance of the Johnson brothers’ masterpiece. | A collaboration Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and Ritz Theatre & Museum | MORE INFO…
