The Vision Of Jacqueline B. Holmes
Regarded as one of the first nationally recognized business women in the arts, Jacqueline B. Holmes occupies a special place, in the history of the arts in Jacksonville, Florida. Visionary art collector, consultant and gallerist, Holmes co-founded Jacksonville's first contemporary art gallery in 1962, and later co-founded what is known today as the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, among many other initiatives. Celebrating her legacy, her impeccable aesthetic sense, and remarkable insight into the art of her time, this exhibition highlights Holmes' personal collection of works spanning fashion, furniture, and fine art, honoring her contributions as a pioneering woman in the arts, and her dedication to the community in Jacksonville. This exhibition is sponsored by Joan and Preston Haskell and the families of Connell Mullikin-Pinckney and Elizabeth Mullikin Drake.
