Creating Home: Artwork by Jessica Osceola at Marco Island Historical Museum
Now - October 9, 2021
The Marco Island Historical Museum welcomes artist Jessica Osceola, for her latest exhibition, Creating Home: Artwork by Jessica Osceola, featuring ceramic bas-relief self-portraits and patchwork skirts and aprons. Jessica's work focuses on themes of identity, culture, and home.
Jessica notes, "This body of work is inspired by old Florida themes. The color palette, patterns, and patchwork are influenced by my grandmothers, sisters, and cousins - a strong group of Seminole women who practice the art daily. I wanted the clothing to bring a feminine and happy, feel-good vibe to the 2021 year. Today's patchwork is a culmination of all the styles of our ancestors and today's society and style."
