Event Details

The Mennello Museum of American Art is pleased to announce two returning exhibitions, Our Orlando: Making Sense of our World and American Youth: Our Future.

Our Orlando: Making Sense of our World
Opening August 24, 2018, Our Orlando: Making Sense of our World will feature the work of four rising local artists: Sarah M. Bender, Peterson Guerrier, Boy Kong, and Kelly Ladd.  These four artists conceptualize a multitude of relationships within our shared world – ranging from the personal and familiar to the mysterious and universal. In this exhibition, human experience is depicted, varied as it is in its accounts, through figuration and form, in two and three dimensions. The voices and visions of the artists presented here can be seen in a consideration of how we, as humans, relate to one another and our time on earth by reflecting upon their representations of individuality and imagination.

American Youth: Our Future
American Youth: Our Future is an exhibition to support and foster the creativity of Orlando’s talented teen artists. In this exhibition’s second year, the Mennello Museum of American Art will hold a juried art show and currently has an open Call for Art to all Orange and Seminole County high school students as part of our increasingly expansive, diverse, and inclusive exhibition program. American Youth: Our Futureaspires to empower rising artists and give them a space to engage in conversations through their art with our community.
