Imagining Florida: History and Myth in the Sunshine State is a major anthology of art made in and inspired by Florida and its people, places, flora, and fauna. Drawing upon significant public and private collections nationwide, the exhibition brings together more than 200 artworks of high artistic caliber – and many that are rare historically – to depict the history and mythology of the state through the eyes of some of the most celebrated artists of the period.

Organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art and guest curated by Dr. Jennifer Hardin and Mr. Gary Monroe, Imagining Florida is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.
