Lecture with UCF Professor of Art History, Dr. Keri Watson Thursday, February 14 at 5pm

Prison Nation is a traveling photographic exhibition coordinated by Aperture that brings together the work of photographers who focus on prisons and prisoner life. From the 1960’s through contemporary prison culture in the United States these photographs address the question, “how can images tell the story of mass incarceration when the imprisoned don’t have control over their own representation?”


A dedicated exhibition space located on the second floor of the museum featuring rotating solo and group exhibitions by talented young photographers in the community. 



Photographs by Meghan D’Arcy

FEBRUARY 5 - JULY 20, 2019

The seventh installment of our Youth in Focus series features the work of Meghan D’Arcy, a 17 year-old student who attends Spruce Creek High School. She came to the museum’s attention through her continued involvement with our educational programs over the past several years and has quickly established herself as a talented portrait and lifestyle photographer.

A strategic balance of color, contrasting tones and strong compositions are a hallmark of Meghan’s style, along with a profound understanding of her subject matter. Her artistic intentions and stylistic choices are reflected in the scenes she so carefully orchestrates and presents to the viewer. Her subjects don’t simply blend into the background, they subtly alter them, challenging the lines and planes of the surrounding architecture with their own physicality.
