Location: Go Tuk'n, Inc.

Jacksonville is the largest landmass city in the United States. All of our history and artwork is spread across many areas. There is no better way to see and learn about our downtown history than on a tuk tuk. Our downtown Jacksonville landscape is ever changing but our history and how we have developed the unique spaces are strongly preserved. In 1901, the great fire of Jacksonville quickly swept through the area and destroyed our downtown. Thankfully architects from around the world heard about our plight and came to help us design our buildings. On this wonderful tour, you will also experience several memorials and the oldest living thing in our city, the great Treaty Oak. A fun addition is being able to ride in our luxury tuk tuk over our historic Main Street bridge.
History, Business Architectural Achievements, Memorials and more. Your Downtown Jacksonville City tour has it all – plus hidden gems locals don’t even know about! Explore beautiful city landscape of Downtown Jacksonville and learn about the region’s rich and varied history at the beach and along the banks of the St. John’s River.

Step back in time while visiting famous landmarks and old architectural gems. And so much more!

Location: Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville

Multiple Ones: Contemporary Perspectives in Printmedia, features the work of contemporary printmakers, highlighting the multitude of possibilities that printmaking holds as a medium. This exhibition presents printmaking in a fresh and indisputably current way.

Location: Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville

Geometry and art have always been intimately connected since ancient times, from Da Vinci's use of the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio, or Cezanne's famous quote “Treat nature by means of the cylinder, the sphere, and the cone”; to modern art's use of the Fibonacci spiral and other geometric principles in order to create aesthetics and visual harmony.

This exhibition explores the use of geometry and mathematical concepts in contemporary art, through works in the MOCA collection, complemented by loans from local private collections.

PROJECT ATRIUM: CARL JOE WILLIAMS

Location: Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville

 

In Making Great Lives Matter, Carl Joe Williams, a New Orleans- based multimedia artist, presents a large-scale project that considers the idea of the American Dream. In the Atrium, Williams' signature vibrant and rhythmic geometric patterns, inspired by African American quilt patterns and ancient sacred geometry, cover the 40ft high Atrium walls. Embedded throughout are objects and power symbols, including Adinkra symbols from West Africa; the American flag, and Confederate flag; as well as ancient symbols adopted by supremacist groups in the 20th century; all woven together to form a historical backdrop for the televisions and video monitors in the lower tiers.

The televisions feature harrowing newsreel footage of injustice, including the death of George Floyd that shook the country in May of 2020. The lower tier of videos features members of the Jacksonville community providing answers to a series of questions posed by the artist that explore their own perspectives on the American Dream.
