Throughout 2018, the Museum will commemorate 40 years of Florida’s Capitol Complex. In 1978, the vision for the Capitol included both a monument to the state’s history and a soaring new tower to represent the modern and progressive Florida of the present and future.
As we explored the architectural, artistic, and legislative decisions that led to this new landscape for Florida’s capitol city, we invited fifth graders from across Florida to reflect with us.
The project was open to all school districts, private schools, and charter schools. Participating schools sent their top 3 choices. This exhibit showcases the creativity and talents of these fifth grade students.
Each work displays the artist’s response to the question:
What do you think Florida’s Capitol will look like in 2058?
