Through Our Eyes 2014:

Call and Response: Illuminating God's Trombones 

Now Open through July 2014

In the gallery of the Ritz Theatre and Museum

 

Written by Jacksonville’s “Poet Laureate”, James Weldon Johnson’s God’s Trombones celebrates the eloquence, earthiness and passion of African American preachers.  Their unique and often dramatic delivery of inspirational messages to the congregation combined vivid imagery, spiritual references and worldly applications. The theme of this exhibit challenges artists to create work inspired by the writings of one of the world’s great literary figures.
