Geared to an adult audience
ABOUT THIS EVENT
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of The University of North Florida, and underlining MOCA's special affiliation as a cultural institute of UNF, this exhibition showcases the work of fifty artists, each having graduated from the Department of Art, Art History and Design, and having carved substantial careers as professional, practicing artists. Working across a breadth of media - from photography to painting, film to ceramics, and sculpture to printmaking - the diversity of work on display is reflective of the variety of art disciplines taught at UNF, as well as the wealth of career opportunities that UNF alumni choose to explore. The first exhibition of its kind, FIFTY demonstrates the strength of art and creativity at UNF, as well as its continued impact and reach in Jacksonville, across the nation, and around the world.
