With a new focus and new members, this year's Artists' League exhibit follows its previous exhibitions from 2003 and 2016. The Artists' League is a special membership of the FSU MoFA which is the largest academic art museum in the Big Bend. It is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
The Artists' League of the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts (MoFA) is comprised of established and emerging artists from the region. With a wide diversity of media represented, members are fine artists, fine craftsmen, patrons, and part-time artists. Their work may be found in galleries, museums, art spaces, and exhibitions around the country.
The League would like to express appreciate for the leadership of former Museum Director, Dr. Allys Palladino-Craig, who retired in September of this year and League Liaison, Dr. Viki Thompson Wylder, who will leave in December 2018. The Museum and the League have often worked closely in support of each other and extend best wishes to these individuals on their respective retirements. The League welcomes the new Museum Director, Dr. Preston McLane, and Gallery Director, Meredith Lynn.

Museum of Florida History
Opened in 1977, the Museum of Florida History collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets evidence of past and present cultures in Florida, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of this heritage.
As the state history museum, it focuses on artifacts and eras unique to Florida's development and on roles that Floridians have played in national and global events.
Through exhibits, educational programs, research, and collections, the Museum reflects the ways that people have shaped and reacted to their cultural and natural environments. The newest attraction at the Museum is Phase 2 of the permanent exhibit Forever Changed: La Florida, 1513–1821. Phase 1 of Forever Changed opened in 2012 and featured the time period 1513–1565. The new exhibit explores a dynamic period in history—from the meeting and interaction of native and European cultures to Florida's adoption as a United States territory.
