Poe Collection – Nov. 22, 2019 until April 30, 2020. Located on the second floor of the Main House, the Elisabeth Ireland Poe Art Gallery features permanent works of Mrs. Poe’s collection, in addition to an impressive rotation of special exhibits. Both Mrs. Poe and her husband, Parker Barrington, shared an appreciation for art depicting the culture and lifestyle of South Georgia, but Parker B.

On loan from The Thomasville Center for the Arts (where Mr. Poe bequeathed his collection upon his death in 1991), this engaging exhibit features an eclectic look into many different art forms and design. From the Parisian Toulouse-Lautrec prints to an 18th century Chinese Lotus bowl from Greta Garbo’s estate, the collection showcases highlights from more than 700 pieces of fine and decorative art Mr. Poe amassed in his lifetime. For more information about the plantation and upcoming special events, visit pebblehill.com.

Featuring food, artists, faith, and performances which showcase traditions from around the world, this family-friendly event has something for everyone. This festival is a celebration of the human existence and the diversity of our local area and offers the chance for the entire community to come together to celebrate their differences and discover their similarities.

One of the most powerful ways to share culture is through art, craft, and food. Tables offering information about various religious and cultural beliefs and practices, as well as craft vendors showcasing art, music, and food from around the world will be part of the event. This festival provides an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about faiths, philosophies, and cultures different from their own through interaction. The focus is on information and education, not condemnation or conversion.

Expressions of culture and belief vary across the globe and the World Culture Festival showcases these traditions in the greater Tallahassee area by bringing together local dancers, singers, poets, musicians, and storytellers to share their talents. Performances and interactive engagements will be scheduled all day so enjoy the performances or jump in for a class!
