"I was so thrilled to have a painting hanging at the University and I donated it in Joe Pember's honor."
This is a rare opportunity to peek inside the studios of 70+ resident artists at the CoRK Arts District in Jacksonville's Riverside area. Artists will have their doors open to display and discuss their works with the visiting public. This is a highly anticipated annual event that lasts all day. Come meet the artists, enjoy art, music, food (food trucks will be on site) and who-knows-what-else for your enjoyment!
Incoming Mayor, Lenny Curry, asked Downtown Vision and local artists to create a larger-than-life "Hollywood" sign for the commemoration of his recent inauguration. Artists, including Robert Leedy, hand painted the twelve letters in a unique style which represents the diversity of artistic talent in the city. Come to Hemming Park where the sign will be displayed during Art Walk and have your photo taken in front of it. (Robert painted the 'S' shown here!)
