Making art personal
The Florida State University Research Group, a student performance-art group, will share its talents Saturday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., in the Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts (227 E. Kennedy Blvd., 407-647-3307) in Eatonville. This performance was designed to coordinate with the current “Question Bridge” installation, a video featuring individuals speaking to the viewer about their life experiences. The entire experience explores intergenerational relationships and the interactions between audience and the art/performer.
