Go fish: at Cornell Museum of Art
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.
Orquesta Nostalgia, a Latin band, performed on the outdoor pavilion stage, courtesy of Delray’s Art & Jazz event.
The Cornell Museum is located at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach.
