This Zelebration will kick off LeMoyne’s Chain of Parks Art Festival for 2021.

LeMoyne Arts will be showing eight never-seen-before pieces for the Zelebration, along with hosting lectures and roundtable discussions on civil rights, Zerbe’s art journey, and birding (Zerbe is best known in Tallahassee for his collection of bird lithographs inspired by his time at St. Marks Wildlife Santuary).
