Seminole culture is reaching beyond South Florida, as the Orlando Museum of Art will present the exhibit “Enduring Beauty: Seminole Art and Culture” from March 22 to July 8. The gallery, created by I.S.K. “Keith” Reeves V and Sara Reeves, will be displayed in the museum’s Mr. and Mrs. Chesley G. Magruder Gallery.
The collection displays crafts and art from as early as the 19th century. Items include an embroidered and beaded bandolier bag, men’s big shirts, women’s and children’s clothing, patchwork, beaded necklaces, woven baskets and dolls. There are also paintings, prints and photographs documenting important people and cultural activities.
The museum will host a reception for the grand opening on March 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 for guests and free for museum members and include a cash bar and complimentary soft drinks and water.
