Exhibit Opening Celebration
You are cordially invited to join us for an opening reception! This powerful and transformational collection exhibits Jimmy Osceola’s large and colorful persona and culturally significant artwork. His paintings continue to inspire and tell the story of the Seminole people. Jimmy Osceola was a self-taught artist who developed his own unique style. He felt it was important to show the Seminole people surviving, developing their culture and loving each other. He hoped that his art would help the younger generation to visualize how their people developed to what it is today and to remember the Seminole cultural history.
“We need to show that we're still here and alive and surviving.” - Seminole Artist, Jimmy Osceola
