WHO: Phyllis McEwen and The Museum of Florida Art
TIME: Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00pm and Thursday, February 11th at 10:00am
LOCATION: Volusia County Historic Courthouse 125 West Indiana Avenue, DeLand, Florida
The Museum of Florida Art is hosting our fifth cycle of the Legendary Florida Program Series. This programming offers an innovative approach to Florida history through the exhibition, online access, interdisciplinary curriculum and outreach with the artist. The program promotes and utilizes the works of a living contemporary Florida artist that creates works that “fit” the story in history rather than attempting to build that story around historical works of art. The program presents FREE school and adult tours, lectures, curriculum and education resources online. The interdisciplinary education program is augmented by interpretive text, video, lecture programs, and a language and visual arts, science and music curriculum.
The focus for this presentation will be Jackson Walker’s painting of Zora Neale Hurston, The Maverick of Eatonville. Phyllis McEwen will present dramatic facts about Hurston coupled with discussion led by the artist. This program is relevant to consideration of the progress and perspective of African Americans in Florida and the nation, particularly in light of the historic victory of Barack Obama, the first African American to hold the Presidency of the United States. Phyllis McEwen is an actor, poet and instructor in the Department of Africana Studies at the University of South Florida.
A novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist, Zora Neale Hurston was the prototypical authority on black culture from the Harlem Renaissance. She first gained attention with her short stories such as “John Redding Goes to Sea” and “Spunk” which appeared in black literary magazines. After several years of anthropological research financed through grants and fellowships, Zora Neale Hurston’s first novel, Jonah’s Gourd Vine, was published in 1934 to critical success. In 1935, her book Mules and Men, which investigated voodoo practices in black communities in Florida and New Orleans, also brought her kudos.
The year 1937 saw the publication of what is considered Hurston’s greatest novel, Their Eyes Watching God. And the following year her travelogue and study of Caribbean voodoo, Tell My Horse, was published. It received mixed reviews, as did her 1939 novel Moses, Man of the Mountain. Her final novel, Seraph on the Suwanee, published in 1948, was a critical failure.
Next Week, Don’t Miss Fear and Anxiety on the Florida Frontier
WHO: Dr. Joe Knetsch, Jackson Walker, Museum of Florida Art
TIME: Wednesday, February 17th at 7pm and Thursday, February 18th at 10am
LOCATION: Volusia County Historic Courthouse 125 West Indiana Avenue, DeLand, FL
Dr. Joe Knetsch will be discussing Jackson Walker’s Legendary Florida Collection paintings of Seminole History in Florida and relating them to his new book: Fear and Anxiety on the Florida Frontier. This dialogue is relevant today as West Point and other United States military academies are studying the Seminole Wars and other Native American wars to gain insights into current military conflict in Afghanistan and other areas of the world.
Dr. Joe Knetsch, author of over 200 articles on Florida history and has edited two books, written a text-book on Florida’s surveying history and published Florida’s Seminole Wars, 1817-1858, Faces on the Frontier, Florida’s Surveyors and Developers in the 19th Century and Fear and Anxiety on the Florida Frontier: The Second Seminole War.
