FRIESEKE IN FLORIDA: MEMORIES OF JACKSONVILLE IN THE 1880s

Location: Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens

Noted American Impressionist painter Frederick Carl Frieseke moved to northeast Florida in 1881 at the age of seven. Along with his father and sister, they lived in Floral Bluff, just outside the Jacksonville city limits. Today, this location is in Arlington, not far from Jacksonville University. The young boy was enchanted with his new surroundings. His family stayed four years before returning to Michigan. Although he would not return, Frieseke never forgot his time on the First Coast. In his mid-40s, while living in France, he created a series of watercolors and paintings inspired by his childhood, and in 1936, recounted his memories to his daughter. The words that follow are Frieseke’s own, part of a narrative he called Uneventful Reminiscences. Like the watercolors on view, it is part of the Cummer Museum’s permanent collection. In conjunction with our own anniversary and the City’s Bicentennial, we hope you enjoy this snapshot of life in Jacksonville in the 1880s. This exhibition is organized by the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens.

Cotton will guide a visual tour of representative masterful landscapes designed by Olmsted, as well as his two sons, the founders of fabled Olmsted Brothers firm. Laurence will offer a tour of select Olmsted landscapes in Florida and the Southeastern states.

About Laurence Cotton

Laurence Cotton, currently based in Portland, Oregon, a city that benefits from an Olmsted-planned park system, originally hails from Boston, renowned for its Olmsted landscapes and the home base for generations of landscape design practitioners working for the Olmsted Brothers firm. A practicing public historian, and writer/producer of historical films for PBS, Cotton trained as a cultural anthropologist and brings that lens to bear on much of his work.

He takes her laptop in the cold barn with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. “No way,” replies Farmer Brown. “No blankets!” So, the cows go on strike, and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets? No milk! No eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals’ demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously moving musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin
