Picnic and Pops

April 19th, 2016

The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra invites you to the 9th Annual Picnic and Pops concert this May 1st, 2016. This outdoor concert is on the Palm Coast Arts Foundation’s own site in Town Center. Don’t waste your time in securing your table for this event—it’s not too early to do so! Be sure to bring your own picnic and drinks as you enjoy the music under the stars.

 

Gates for the event open at 6:00 pm with the concert beginning at 8:00 pm and running until approximately 9:30 pm. The Jacksonville Symphony conductor this year will be Nathan Aspinall.

After March 15th, the prices will increase, with prices at the door for the general public being $50. Buy early to save!

African American Museum of the Arts

March 2nd, 2016

The African American Museum of the Arts is a not for profit arts facility and is the region’s only museum that is primarily devoted to African American and Caribbean American cultural art. The artistic excellence of the African American and Caribbean Americans is reflected within exhibition and provides the opportunity for those in the fields of visual, literary and performing arts all while encouraging interaction for the community members through outreach exhibitions, presentations and performances. The African American Museum of Arts is open for 10 am to 4 pm Wednesday through Saturday. While admission is free, the museum does as for you to schedule tours in advanced.

 

The African American Museum of the Arts was founded in 1994. The museum is located in historic DeLand. The seat of Volusia County Government, the African American Museum of the Arts proves to be a unique and vital resource to not only this part of Florida, but the entire state. The museum is known for housing a revolving gallery so that visitors can find works of both established and emerging artists. With a permanent collection of more than 200 artifacts—including sculptures and ceremonial masks from countries of Africa—the museum prides itself on providing the highest quality of African American art in all its forms.

 

Aside from the vast amount of visual arts contained within the African American Museum of the Arts, the museum founded the Little Theater of DeLand in 1999. This theater was founded in order for children and adults to be given the opportunity to develop their dramatic abilities. Additionally, there is great regard to the literary arts, as the museum is researching the history of Spring Hill—the community in which the museum is located—for the purpose of writing a book.

 

Again, while there is a permanent collection of more than 200 artifacts, you can find what art collections will be coming to the museum throughout the year by visiting the website’s calendar here. For more information contact 386.736.4004 or art@africanmuseumdeland.org. It is asked that if you have a group larger than 10 people that you contact the Executive Director, Mary Allen and also send the Museum a letter confirming your tour.
