The 2020 – A Look Back Photo Exhibit on Display at the James S. Page Governmental Complex
Nassau County, Florida, May 17, 2022 – We are pleased to announce that The 2020-A Look Back photo exhibit is on display now through Monday, November 14, 2022, at the James S. Page Government Complex located at 96135 Nassau Place, Yulee, FL 32097.
2020 was an unprecedented year that caused uncertainty to citizens across the country, including Nassau County. Amelia Island Plantation Artist’s Guild and Gallery members Karen Bowden, Barbara Hopkins, Dickie Anderson and Sarah Edwards thought it would be interesting to put together an exhibit that showed how residents navigated through the trials presented in 2020, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic.
In January 2021, the group solicited photos from the public that depicted how Nassau County residents faced these new challenges. The community response was outstanding, and they ultimately ended up with an exhibit of approximately 100 photos that exemplify how Nassau County residents persevered during a difficult time.
On April 9, 2021, the exhibit opened at the Plantation Artists Guild and Gallery and has been featured at various locations including the Amelia Island Courtyard and Springhill Suites, the Song & Story Bookstore and Bistro, the Council on Aging, and the Fernandina Beach Library.
The 2020-A Look Back photo exhibit designated Arts Alive as the recipient of any revenues resulting from the project. The organization provides free or low-cost music and arts instruction for Nassau County children who have little or no access to them.
Any member of the public wishing to view the Exhibit can do so Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm (except for holidays). If you have any questions, please contact the County Manager’s Office at (904) 530-6010.
