"Imagining Florida é mais profunda do que as exposições
anteriores", disse Irvin Lippman, diretor executivo do Museu
de Arte de Boca Raton. "De paisagens naturais intocadas que
desapareceram há muito tempo, para a sua identidade atual
como um destino de hiper-turismo", disse Lippman.

“Imagining Florida deve servir como ponto de muita discussão sobre a
vitalidade da "cena artística", na Flórida, que começou não com as feiras
de arte de Miami, na década de 2000, mas no final de 1800, quando Henry
Flagler criou uma colônia de arte em St. Augustine e no início de 1900, 
quando James Deering construiu Vizcaya", acrescenta Lippman.



("Imagining Florida should serve as a point of much discussion about the 
vitality of the ‘art scene’ in Florida, that began not with art fairs in 
Miami in the 2000s, but in the late 1800s, when Henry Flagler created an
 art colony in St. Augustine and in the early 1900s, when James Deering 
built Vizcaya,” adds Lippman).
