Art from the Heart of Florida.
Crealdé presents an invitational exhibition celebrating the art and artists from the heart of Florida, as a tribute to the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de León’s arrival on its east coast. Come and meet some of our area’s most accomplished contemporary visual artists who call Central Florida home. The focus of the show is to highlight work representing diverse interpretations of that experience.
There is a certain “Florida state of mind” that is
reflective of the art produced in the center of the state. The skies are brighter here and there is a potent mix of identities that contrasts and combines old Florida with the bright sprawl that also forms a basis for our day to day life in the tourist corridor.

Purvis Young: Urban Expressionist
January 24 – March 29, 2014
Miami resident Purvis Young, 1943-2010, was an African American artist who commented on the state of his Overtown community through his artwork. Using plywood, cabinet doors, and other debris tossed out by his neighbors, he created art that speaks about the present day lives of black people. A selection of his paintings and books will be on loan from Volusia County art collector Lisa Stone.
An opening night panel discussion, Exploring African American Communities through the Art of Purvis Young, will be moderated by folklorist and UCF Professor Emeritus Kristin Congdon, Ph.D. This panel will discuss the ways in which Young’s perspective of the African American community, specifically and in general, has merit. It will also address Young’s vision of making change.
The opening event begins with the panel discussion from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, followed by a reception with live music from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., Friday, January 24, at the Heritage Center.
