Opening Reception: “Enduring Beauty: Seminole Art and Culture”
March 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Orlando Museum of Art is pleased to present “Enduring Beauty: Seminole Art and Culture,” an exhibition drawn from the collection of I.S.K. “Keith” Reeves V and Sara W. Reeves, considered to be the largest private collection of Florida Seminole material. “Enduring Beauty” celebrates Seminole culture with works of art, adornment and domestic crafts dating from the early 19th century to the mid-20th century. These objects are not only beautiful and significant, they are expressions of the Seminole’s extraordinary history as the Native American people of Florida.
Included in the exhibition are an embroidered and beaded bandolier bag; men’s big shirts, women’s and children’s clothing all decorated with appliqué, embroidery and patchwork motifs; beaded necklaces; woven baskets and costumed dolls. Accompanying these objects are historic paintings, prints and photographs that document important individuals, families and the Seminole way of life during the past two centuries.
