The inaugural A Vision for Art was hosted on St. Mark's campus April 26 - 30. The event kicked off on Friday, April 26 with the Opening Night Celebration cocktail party. Over 350 guests enjoyed an evening of art, community, and celebration amidst artwork by 37 artists from the greater Jacksonville area and across the country. Throughout the 5 day event, over 500 people visited our campus to view and purchase artwork.
A Vision for Art was curated by Space 42, a 22,000 sq. ft warehouse in Jacksonville's Arts District that brings together a gallery space for art, events, performances and pop-up shops. Michelle and Kevin Calloway, owners of Space 42, worked closely with the artists and collectively hung over 170 pieces of artwork for the event.
