Through Our Eyes 2012: 20/20 Perfect Vision

To mark the twenty year milestone of Jacksonville’s longest running visual arts exhibit showcasing new works by African American artists, Through Our Eyes 2012 features 20 artists, including San Marco resident Gil Mayers, in the exhibit “20/20 Perfect Vision.” The show will run through Jun. 30 in the gallery of the Ritz Theatre and Museum at 829 N. Davis Street. To date, about 75 different artists have participated in the annual show.

Through Our Eyes was conceived and has been curated since 1993 by Lydia P. Stewart, who was a Public Affairs Producer, at PBS station WJCT, where the exhibit was first presented in celebration of Black History Month. Through Our Eyes found a new home at the newly created Ritz Theatre and LaVilla Museum in 1999, when Stewart was appointed Museum Administrator.

Now a permanent fixture in Jacksonville’s cultural landscape, Through Our Eyes is committed to nudging artists to create and present fresh, innovative, experimental and non-traditional works that explore a wide range of subjects and may utilize new media or inventive installation techniques
