In celebration of the National Parks Service Centennial “Find Your Park”, 50 original artworks featuring images from America’s Parks will be exhibited. Included in the display, will be 18 selected works from the “Find Your Park” Plein Air event that was held in April as part of National Parks Week at the Castillo de San Marco and Ft. Matanzas. Of the 18, five were selected to receive awards; one for best of show, two for best of media, and two for honorable mention. The Find Your Park Plein Air artwork will complement the works of the America’s Parks exhibition.
This event is hosted by the St Johns Cultural Council, in partnership with the Lightner Museum, St Johns County Tourist Development Council, and the Community Foundation of NE Florida.
