The Art and history museums in Maitland (Website) will host a new summer exhibition inspired by the sights and sounds of Spain from May 22 to September 19 titled Seeing Segovia.
The new exhibit is inspired by the founder of the Art Center, Jules Andre Smith, who traveled from Paris to Segovia, Spain (and not to Sokovia from Avengers), in the spring of 1921. He recorded his travels in drawings, prints, watercolors and a short story recounting his first impressions and experiences in Spain. Guests will be treated to previously unseen works at the new exhibit, including several of Smith’s original etching plates and his original mid-1800s cast iron printing press.
Smith’s short story and images will also be printed for the first time and available for purchase as a small book, reminiscent of Mark Twain’s travel writings.
An opening night of the exhibition, A Night in Spain, will be held on May 21 and will include a cash bar, Spanish cuisine and a live performance by the Flamenco del Sol dance troupe, live Spanish guitar from Don Soledad and a chance to roam the campus at night.
