Join us for a celebration of John Steinbeck’s 115th birthday and the opening reception of “’In the Eyes of the Hungry’: Florida’s Changing Landscape.” Inspired by The Grapes of Wrath, this exhibition seeks to inspire and contribute to conversations about demographic, geographic, and environmental shifts, with an emphasis on human relationships with the landscape. The selected artists provide immediate yet transcendental responses to the environment that explore ideas such as conservation, migration, agriculture, poverty, homelessness, and local food security. Exhibiting artists include: Cesar Cornejo, Lilian Garcia-Roig, Mark Messersmith, Noelle Mason, Donald Martin, Carl Knickerbocker, Brooks Dierdorff, Arthur Rothstein, Carl Mydans, Marion Post Wolcott, and Gordon Parks. The UCF Art Gallery is free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 10am to 5pm. The exhibition will be at the UCF Art Gallery 2/27-3/3 and at the Terrace Gallery at Orlando City Hall 3/13-4/23.
