Myth and Dream: Exploring the Cultural Legacies of Florida and the Caribbean
3,000-square foot exhibition of art, cultural artifacts,
photographs, maps, books, manuscripts, and descriptive text panels

companion digital exhibition will be displayed on the World Wide

The museum exhibition, accompanied by a catalog, educational
materials, lectures and symposia, and performance events, opened at

year 2000 it will travel to five major Florida cities. The project
