Myth and Dream: Exploring the Cultural Legacies of Florida and the Caribbean

A 3,000-square foot exhibition of art, cultural artifacts, photographs, maps, books, manuscripts, and descriptive text panels portraying New World cultural history of the past millennium. A companion digital exhibition will be displayed on the World Wide Web, enhanced by images of additional objects, in-depth text, and a series of research articles by New World cultural history scholars. The museum exhibition, accompanied by a catalog, educational materials, lectures and symposia, and performance events, opened at the Historical Museum of Southern Florida in October 1999. In the year 2000 it will travel to five major Florida cities. The project was developed by the Jay I. Sislak Foundation.
