Join Senior Curator of Education and History, Zach Zacharias, at the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art for a look at the Florida images from Harper’s Weekly. Once the most popular newspaper in America from 1855-1910, Harper’s Weekly gave birth to modern journalism. Using amazing illustrations carved from wood engravings and new technology, Harper’s Weekly could visually document moments in American and Florida history with great ease. A blend of art, technology, and history, this presentation takes you on a visual journey through the state during the Civil War and the Gilded Age of Florida.
Free for members or with paid museum admission.
