Upon reopening, the museum will include two new exhibits featuring renowned artist Elgin Jumper in the Mosaic Gallery and an exhibition on longtime Miccosukee leader Buffalo Tiger in the Nook Gallery.
The Elgin Jumper exhibit documents examples of the techniques and methodologies directly influencing this Florida Seminole painter, who resides on the Hollywood Reservation. Jumper’s works include examples of tonalism, cubism, fauvism, graffiti art, abstract art, mixed-media, and charcoal drawings. The exhibit will be open through May 15.
The Buffalo Tiger exhibit investigates what he called ‘the bridge” between Native American and western worlds. It celebrates his contributions to the environment, Native American rights, education, and sovereignty. Some of the highlights include a replica of the “Buckskin Declaration” as presented to President Eisenhower in 1954 and the story of Buffalo Tiger leading a delegation of Miccosukee to the inauguration of Fidel Castro. This exhibit will be available through Spring 2022.
