Lay of the Land will feature art and objects presenting the culture of Florida’s 500-year cattle industry. A broad range of items will be exhibited, from hand-made functional objects like saddles, whips, chaps, and spurs, to fine art photography, sketches, paintings, and sculpture. The exhibition will convey the excitement of the rodeo and cattle drive, the unspoiled beauty of Florida’s native scrub and working landscape, and a culture completely unique to our state.
