Arts4All - Forty 4 Forty: An Exhibition Celebrating Art, Life, and Floridians!
Paint Party Girl
To commemorate its fortieth anniversary, Arts4All Florida called on its artists for forty pieces of artwork. Artists answered the call with paintings, drawings, photography, digital art, collage, and calligraphy. All of the exhibited works have identical dimensions but that is where the similarity ends. Each makes a singular, inspired visual statement. The exhibition includes works by award-winning artists, Arts4ALL Florida artists-in-residence and registry artists, student artists, and artists who support the vision of a world in which the arts are universally accessible.

Our most recent exhibit: Underwater Innovations: The Florida Springs Photography of Bruce Mozert
The State Archives of Florida is hosting the exhibition, “Underwater Innovations: The Florida Springs Photography of Bruce Mozert,” featuring underwater photographs taken by Mozert at Silver Springs during the 1950s while he was employed there. Mozert’s most memorable photographs are those in which he has models reading magazines, teaching classes and playing music while posing in the crystal-clear water at Silver Springs.
Museum of Florida History
We prioritize the health and safety of the public and our employees. After careful consideration, the Museum of Florida History will be closed to the public until further notice.
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.
