Eugene Savage: The Seminole Paintings, is a collection of Art Deco style paintings giving a social commentary on the effects of industrialization on the Seminole Indians and their land. The Cummer debuted this collection of 23 paintings and 17 watercolors in an exhibition in the fall of 2011 as part of the museum’s 50th Anniversary celebration. In January, this collection went on the road and traveled to the Frost Museum of Art in Miami, Florida as part of their celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Ponce de Leon’s landing in Florida.
The exhibition has now traveled to the Mennello Museum of American Art in Orlando, Florida, where it will be on view from September 6, 2013 – January 5, 2014.
The Savage exhibition will be complemented by the following exhibitions: Southern Folk Art Masters, Art and Artifacts of the Seminole: Selections from the Collection of I.S.K. Reeves V and Sara W. Reeves, Never No More: Storter’s Southwest Florida and Earl Cunningham’s Everglades all are on view through January 5, 2014. For more information, go to their website.
