> DESCRIPTION

In 1935, American artist Eugene Francis Savage made the first of many journeys into the Florida Everglades to study the Seminoles. Inspired by his observations, he created the most extensive painted record of the Florida Seminoles from the early twentieth century. These works reflected Savage's concern for the plight of Native culture as tourism, land development, and environmentalist debates threatened their traditional way of life. This exhibition will be traveling from the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville.
