In the Eyes of the Hungry: Florida's Changing Landscape

Free and Open to the Public!

Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read and inspired by John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Grapes of Wrath (1939), In the Eyes of the Hungry: Florida’s Changing Landscape explores Florida’s demographic, geographic and ecological shifts over the last century.

Working in photography, painting, printmaking, installation and textiles, the selected artists, including Cesar Cornejo, Mark Messersmith, Lilian Garcia-Roig, Noelle Mason, Peter Schreyer, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Emil Holzhauer, William Jenkins, Doris Leeper, J. André Smith, and the Lake Apopka farmworkers, provide immediate yet transcendental responses to Florida’s changing landscape and explore ideas ranging from agriculture and industrialization to migration and tourism to ecology and conservation.

The exhibition will also appear at the UCF Art Gallery February 27 through March 3.
