ArtCalusa: Reflections on Representation

Dean Quigley, 2012 - The Calusa Indians and Don Ponce de León

The City of Ft. Walton Beach Heritage Park & Cultural Center is proud to host the Art Calusa: Reflections on Representation traveling art exhibit this summer at the Indian Temple Mound Museum. This exhibition features eight artists who live and work in Florida. Their paintings, works on paper, and etched glass visually interpret the life and experiences of Florida’s indigenous peoples with a particular focus on the Calusa Indians during the period of contact with early European explorers. It’s a gorgeous collection of pieces that as a whole tell a wonderful story of Florida’s first inhabitants.

The artists featured in the exhibit are Lucas Century, Merald Clark, Charles Dauray, David Meo, Theodore Morris, Dean Quigley, Hermann Trappman, and Jackson Walker.

The exhibit will be on display in the Yulee Lazarus Education Room at the Indian Temple Mound Museum June 2-September 6. The museum is open Monday-Saturday, 10am-4:30pm.

The exhibit was brought to Heritage Park through the generous support of the Friends of the Museums, Inc. and the City of Ft. Walton Beach. Art Calusa is curated by the Lee Trust for Historic Preservation, Inc. in Ft. Myers and was created with the support of Florida Humanities Council, the Florida Anthropological Society, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the College of Life Foundation, the Beaches of Ft. Myers and Sanibel Tourist Development Council, and the Florida House on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.
