We are saddened by the passing of artist & activist Faith Ringgold whose practice addressed female independence and racial equality. Ringgold used various media such as painting, quilting, and literature with themes of African American history and identity.

Tar Beach is based on Ringgold’s narrative quilt, inspired by her childhood memories growing up in Harlem, New York. We're honored to have this work in The Rollins Museum of Art permanent collection. Visit the link below for more about Faith Ringgold and Tar Beach.

03/11/2024

Start your week with a double dose of Dutch photographer Hellen van Meene was commissioned by TIME magazine magazine to photograph 🌍Greta Thunberg, the climate change activist, during one of Thunberg’s school strikes.

Said van Meene “We shouldn’t see Greta as a young cute thing; she’s a serious girl with a serious message.”

VIEW THIS WORK in person in 🪧 Silent Protest: Perspectives of War and Disability at Rollins Museum of Art. Admission is FREE!

ABOUT THIS WORK:
Van Meene photographed Thunberg in a stark, shadowy, desolate concrete corridor in Stockholm’s Old Town of Gamla Stan near the Swedish Parliament. Thunberg, fashioned here in a green dress selected by the photographer to symbolize “life,” contrasts her bleak surroundings that represent the possible future of her generation if the world does not take action.

In addition to her climate activism, Thunberg has been vocal about her Autism diagnosis and has shared how this has positively impacted her life and work: “I have Asperger’s syndrome and that means I’m sometimes a bit different than the norm. And-given the right circumstances-being different is a superpower.”

The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College features rotating exhibitions, ongoing programs, and an extensive permanent collection of more than 5,600 objects that spans centuries, from examples of ancient art and artifacts to contemporary art. Open to the public year-round, its holdings include the only European Old Master paintings in the Orlando area, a sizeable American art collection, and a forward-thinking contemporary collection on view both at the Museum and The Alfond Inn at Rollins. Located a few blocks from campus, The Alfond Inn is a visionary philanthropic boutique hotel whose proceeds help fund student scholarships. In 1981, the Museum became Florida’s first college museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums (currently the American Alliance of Museums) and continues in 2019 as one of only four AAM-accredited museums in greater Orlando.

As a teaching museum, the Museum poses open-ended questions through collection installations and original exhibitions accompanied by scholarly catalogs. Exhibitions connect with the curriculum of Rollins College and its fields of study, offering varying perspectives and serving as catalysts for larger conversations. The Museum’s research and offerings extend beyond campus and are accessible to the surrounding area colleges, K-12 schools, and lifelong learners.

In addition to continued programming onsite, the Museum staff leads customized and special programs for Rollins College, other colleges and universities, and surrounding communities.
