Art of the Underground: A Figurehead Panel Discussion
November 5, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Orange County Regional History Center is hosting a panel discussion to coincide with their new exhibition, Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground. Discover the role of ephemeral art in community building as panelists explore the art of Orlando’s underground music scene of the 1980s and ’90s. Moderated by Dr. Dori Griffin, associate professor of design & visual communication at the University of Florida School of Art + Art History, the panel will feature five artists who were active in the local music scene. They will examine how artists’ work reflected the messages and motivations that ran through Central Florida at the time and how we can use ephemeral artwork to better understand the past. Featured artists include Thomas Scott, Jeff Matz, Scott Sugiuchi, Greg Reinel, and Klaus Heesch.
Admission is free, but registration is required. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Historical Society of Central Florida.
