Feb 18 all-day
68:18 @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts

In the spring of May 1968, an occupation begun by a group of French students grew to one of the largest demonstrations in modern history. Striking workers and protesters brought Paris to a halt, and the posters and graffiti that amplified their message have become part of our visual vernacular. With original artwork that was posted on the streets of Paris fifty years ago and contemporary prints influenced by current student led gun violence protests, this exhibition explores the role of graphic art in political organizing. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm and lectures by Dr. Tenley Bick and Denise Bookwalter on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 6pm. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.

Le Sang Noir: Brandon Ballengée @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts
Feb 18 all-day

In 2010, Louisiana-based artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Le Sang Noir (“Black Blood”) is a visual response to this tragedy. Locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures, and field projects are a narrative of human impact in the Anthropocene. By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about life in these complex, often fragile ecosystems. Le Sang Noir will be on display from February 15 through March 31. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm and Family Day at the Museum Saturday, February 16, from 10-4. Guests can meet the artist, Brandon Ballengée and there will be informal artist talks, crafts and educational games for diverse audiences. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.

Visualizing the Invisible “Jungle” of Calais @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts
Feb 18 all-day
Visualizing the Invisible "Jungle" of Calais @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts

Since 1999, individuals fleeing conflicts or escaping poverty in the Balkans, the Horn of Africa, Sudan, and the Middle East have come to Calais in hopes of crossing the English Channel on the boats, trains, trucks, and buses that move between France and the U.K. Temporary camps – often referred to as “jungles” – have proliferated, and their periodic demolition has come to be seen as emblematic of the “European migration crisis.” Eric Leleu’s photographs document this changing landscape of watchtowers, barbed-wire fences, flooded zones, walls, and surveillance cameras and explore these failed attempts to control migration and the resilient presence of migrants in and around Calais. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.

GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ: FOSSILIZED INTENT @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Feb 19 – Feb 23 all-day
GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ: FOSSILIZED INTENT @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Gary Sczerbaniewicz creates small sculptural works that showcase hybrid architecture as the subject matter. His scale-model replicas of brick building fragments and brick masonry façade catalogue a range of vignettes that have been culled from his experience living in a rust-belt city for more than a decade. In this grouping of works, disconnected doors, blocked windows, shadows of staircases, collapsed walls, eroded rooflines, and bloated surfaces shrug off their originally designed roles and stand as petrified strata which seem to gently mock the beholder.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4
Open Tuesdays – Saturdays 10am-5pm

LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Feb 19 – Jun 25 all-day
LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Leslie Wallace-Coon takes inspiration from everyday life, of the visible world of people, animals, and her surroundings. Her sculptures and bas-reliefs tell stories of the humorous contractions and extremes of relationships she witnesses between people and their pets. Domestic animals are an inspiration because of the humorous, physical, and “superimposed” human characteristics she sees in them. Her goal as an artist is to create work that compels the viewer to look, laugh, and become caught up the details. Wallace-Coon has work in public and private collections in the region and owns the Bowery Art Gallery in Apalachicola.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4
