In early 2015 the Marco Island Historical Museum (MIHM) and the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts (MIFA) partnered to create and exhibit the juried show “Painting S.W. Florida History.” As part of this collaboration, the awarded artists are now having a subsequent exhibit of their works at the Marco Island Historical Museum. The show “Winner’s Circle” is comprised of the artists’ own selections, and is currently on display.
The awardees are: 1st Place: “The Watson Home” by Linda Chambers; 2nd Place: “Welk Wall-Otter Mound” by Peter Sottong; 3rd Place: “Early Fashionistas” by Inez Hudson; and the People’s Choice: “No Roads” by Joan Scherer. The original pieces are on display in the museum lobby. Reproductions are available in the gift shop.
“Winner’s Circle” is on exhibit from October 6 to November 14, 2015. The Marco Island Historical Museum is located at 180 S. Heathwood Drive in the heart of Marco Island. For information, please call 239-642-1440.
