Todays post comes from Delphine Douglas, class of 2018 and Art Center Multimedia Student Assistant.

This week, I was inspired by the Charles Herbert Moore painting, The Catskills in Spring (1861), to look for springtime works in the permanent collection. I found over a dozen works that directly referenced spring in the title and collected them in this post.

To search the collection visit the FLLAC website, here, and click “collections.”
