The exhibit, which runs through July 25, illustrates art movements from the Hudson River School of the 19th century to early 20th century modernism.

Also, on view through May 30 is "Florida Journeys: African-American Artists From The Sunshine State" with nearly 40 artworks by some of Florida’s finest African-American artists such as Kenneth Falana, Chester L. Williams, Joseph Roache, Mary Proctor,  O.L. Samuels, Harris Wiltsher and Purvis Young.

The museum, in Ocala, Florida, is operated by Central Florida Community College.
