Go fish: at Cornell Mu­seum of Art

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - SCENARIO I -

The Cornell Mu­seum of Art and Amer­i­can Cul­ture re­cently col­lab­o­rated with Del­ray’s Au­gust Art & Jazz event, to host “Fish ‘N Ships—A Fam­ily Night.” Vis­i­tors from the Mu­seum were greeted by an 800-pound, nine-foot fish carved from a sin­gle log of black wal­nut. Inside the gal­leries were amaz­ing marine life paint­ings by Ja­son Mathias and fa­mous ship paint­ings and mod­els by James A. Flood.

Fam­i­lies par­tic­i­pated in sea-themes craft ac­tiv­i­ties and an art scav­enger hunt with prizes. A gallery walk with Flood re­vealed some of the great sto­ries be­hind the his­toric ships he paints.
