Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This presentation introduces audiences to a variety of Florida Seminole portraits from the nineteenth century and how the portraits were used as propaganda to represent the Seminoles as a dying people. “Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time” challenges this long-held belief to explore changing perspectives of Native Americans and the Florida Seminole. With a focus on portraiture over time, the rich history and continued vitality of the Florida Seminole will be brought to life, including introductions to current Seminole artists throughout the state.
Annette B. Fromm is a folklorist who specializes in ethnicity and immigrant cultures and has worked in museums for over 35 years. She has curated exhibits about Native American history and art, and writes and speaks about multiculturalism and museums, ethnographic museum practices, and more. Most recently, she led the graduate museum studies program at Florida International University.
This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Friends of Highlands Hammock State Park. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
This program will be held in the park’s recreation hall. Attendees may park in the campground overflow fields and take the tram to the hall. Dr. Fromm will be available for a “Meet and Greet” before the event at 6 pm. Park entry fees are waived after 6 pm.
