SFCC MOFAC Relief Printmaking Exhibition

Submitted by on February 27, 2012 – 11:26 amNo Comment

Created by Avon Park High School student Toni Crunkleton, the longleaf pine is one of eight plaques featuring a variety of plants and animals that can be found along the Wildflower Wayside Shrine Trail.

Visitors to the South Florida Community College Museum of Florida Art and Culture’s (SFCC MOFAC) Wildflower Wayside Shrine can now view a new relief printmaking exhibit during their walk along the trail. Made by students and community members who attended a printmaking workshop at SFCC, the exhibition includes eight plaques featuring the flora and fauna of the trail. Artists whose plaques are located on the trail are Rose Besch, Kiri Crommet, Toni Crunkleton, Mollie Doctrow, Cathy Futral, Michael Kemp, Emmie Pereira, and Karla Respress.

“The plaques allow the community to become more involved in the development of the trail and provide even more detail about the plants and animals that can be seen on the trail,” said Mollie Doctrow, SFCC MOFAC curator.

Located on the SFCC Highlands Campus, the Wildflower Wayside Shrine is a walking trail through scrub habitat with shrine boxes and trail plaques installed along the way. Each shrine box and trail plaque is dedicated to an endemic or endangered plant species found on the Lake Wales Ridge. The trail takes between 20 and 30 minutes to walk and is clearly marked by signs. The trail is open to the public daily and was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
