22nd Floor Capitol Gallery
Through April 30, 2018
by Jacqueline Roch
Wild Oasis, a celebration of Florida's national parks, is the artist’s personal journey to explore each of these unique locations for the national park service centennial. Hectic busy lives often mean not finding time for those things that can reenergize us, refocus and bring to heart those things that make us connect to our own personal nature. The national parks of Florida are diverse, beautiful sanctuaries within miles of urban areas. With Wild Oasis, it is the artist’s hope is to remind and inspire Floridians to take a minute and slow down, find these spaces, revisit or perhaps explore for the first time the beauty that is our state.

Museum of Florida History
Opened in 1977, the Museum of Florida History collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets evidence of past and present cultures in Florida, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of this heritage.
As the state history museum, it focuses on artifacts and eras unique to Florida's development and on roles that Floridians have played in national and global events.
Through exhibits, educational programs, research, and collections, the Museum reflects the ways that people have shaped and reacted to their cultural and natural environments. The newest attraction at the Museum is Phase 2 of the permanent exhibit Forever Changed: La Florida, 1513–1821. Phase 1 of Forever Changed opened in 2012 and featured the time period 1513–1565. The new exhibit explores a dynamic period in history—from the meeting and interaction of native and European cultures to Florida's adoption as a United States territory.
