thru dec 31
Lightner Museum in St. Augustine will be featuring contemporary art for the first time in its sixty-six-year history. This fall, Theresa Segal will be exhibiting her photographs of the museum’s stored collections. Her digital, color images are a new approach for the artist who is known for her haunting black and white photographs of landscapes, architecture and light studies.
The museum is housed in the former Alcazar Hotel and exhibits collectors’ relics from America’s Gilded Age. For over a two-year period, Segal explored the surreal interiors of the museum’s restricted fourth floor–forty-four small rooms that were once the servants’ quarters of the hotel but now make up “the best attic in the world” as Segal puts it.
A 2013 Artist Enhancement Grant from the Community Foundation of Northeast Florida helped fund the exhibition.
