As a result of Crealdé’s award winning outreach and gallery programs, the organization has assembled three traveling exhibitions. Selections from Storytellers (teen students tell the story of their neighborhood in pictures and words) have been seen by tens of thousands of Floridians since the program’s inception in 1996. Temporary exhibits have been held at the State Capitol in Tallahassee, the Edyth Bush Theater in Orlando, and the Osceola Center of the Arts in Kissimmee, Florida. Semi-permanent displays (on long-term loan from our collection), include community centers and other grass-roots organizations throughout Central Florida.

The Last Harvest: A Tribute to the Life and Work of the Lake Apopka Farmworkers, (a major photography and oral history project funded by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council) has traveled the state of Florida since 1998 and was recently shown during Hispanic Heritage month at Tampa’s Hillsborough Community College Gallery.

A Shared Legacy: Documentary Photography of Florida from the 1930s and Today, traveled througout Florida from 2004 - 2007 visiting the the Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee, the Thomas Center in Gainesville, and the Ormond Beach Museum of Art.

The Last Harvest: A History and Tribute to the life and Work of the Farmworkers on Lake Apopka is the result of a unique collaboration between Crealdé School of Art, the Farmworker Association of Florida (FWAF), and Seminole Community College. In 1998, young students from Apopka farmworker communities, as well as staff from the FWAF, were taught basic photographic and compositional techniques, then went into the community to document the last season of the area’s muck farm industry. Historical research was conducted by Dr. Ron Habin, oral histories were compiled by Dr. Laurie K. Sommers, and many other people and organizations made this important project possible. It was funded in-part by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council.

This comprehensive exhibition consists of over 60 framed archival photographs and over two dozen separate text panels in English and Spanish. A full educational package including speakers and presenters associated with the original project is available with the travelling exhibition.
