Farmworker Quilts to be Featured in UCF Art Gallery

In the Eyes of the Hungry: Florida’s Changing Landscape
We are delighted that the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts will be featured in the UCF Art Gallery in Orlando, FL from Feb. 27-March 3 as part of their upcoming exhibition. 

"In the Eyes of the Hungry: Florida’s Changing Landscape seeks to inspire and contribute to conversations about demographic, geographic, and environmental shifts in Florida, features the work of Cesar Cornejo, Mark Messersmith, Lilian Garcia-Roig, Donald Martin, Noelle Mason, Peter Schreyer, Lisa Mills, Brooks Dierdorff, Carl Knickerbocker, Marion Post Wolcott, Arthur Rothstein, Carl Mydans, Jack Delano, Gordon Parks, Emil Holzhauer, and J. Andre Smith, as well as the Lake Apopka Farmworkers' Memorial Quilts and photographs from “The Last Harvest.” Through sculpture, painting, installation, video, embroidery, quilting, and photography, these artists provide immediate yet transcendental responses to the environment and explore ideas such as conservation, migration, agriculture, poverty, homelessness, and local food security." 

Please join us at the UCF Art Gallery 
for an Opening Reception: 

Monday, February 27, 2017  5 – 7 pm.
