As I Am: Exhibition Showcasing Florida-Based Artists With Disabilities

Free Opening Reception
Friday Sept. 24, 2021 | 7–9pm

On View Sept 24, 2021—JAN 9, 2022

A select group of artists living in Central and North Florida will claim their space in an exhibition lifting up themes of beauty, identity, disability, authentic representation and liberation. Paintings, sculptures, collages and photographs reveal personal journeys marked by limitation and freedom, courage and creativity and, as a result, illuminate our collective human condition. In addition to the featured exhibition Crealde will host Forty4Forty: A Celebration of Arts4All Florida, which is marking its 40th anniversary of providing, supporting and championing arts education and cultural experiences for and by people with disabilities. All text panels will be presented in English and Spanish.

For the safety of all: The gallery will be monitored and will have a capacity of 20 visitors per gallery for 10 minutes. We expect all to be responsible by wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Refreshments will be served outdoors.

All Crealdé locations are ADA accessible. For special needs or group tours, call 407.671.1886.

Preserving the Past and Looking Towards the Future: A Celebration of Hannibal Square

This exhibition depicts the contributions of Winter Park’s African American community from 1900–present, remembering, acknowledging and preserving historic Hannibal Square’s legacy. This is the collection’s largest exhibition to date and is curated by Ms. Fairolyn Livingston, Chief Historian, Ms. Mary Daniels, Historian Docent and Mr. Peter Schreyer, documentary photographer.

“We are currently in Chicago completing our museum research in Washington D.C. and New York. On our long trip through the U.S., we have visited about 25 African American museums (most of the big ones and a number of smaller ones) and many other museums and sites related to American history. We often think back to your museum as one of our best experiences with regard to a specific local approach and convincingly implemented techniques of narrative and display. We wanted to thank you for your admirable work in Winter Park.” – Christian Kravagna, Professor of Post-Colonial Studies, Institute for Arts and Cultural Sciences, Academy of Visual Art, Vienna, Austria

“The Heritage Center is certainly a beacon of light that brings dignity to the community, as well as inspiration to all who visit from near and far. I truly appreciate and was moved by the wonderful exhibition of photographs and stories as told by residents from Winter Park’s historic African American community. The Hannibal Square Heritage Center is a destination that I would recommend without reservation to those visiting Florida.” – Martin Luther King III, Atlanta, GA
