Cultural Explorations

Public Art – Explore your local street art and other public art scene! Do some research on murals, monuments, sculptures, and installations and create a map for your gift recipient. Grab a disposable camera (or your phone) and capture all of your findings. (If you are in Jacksonville, check out the Jax Mural Project).

Local Museum Membership – Membership at a museum usually provides many more benefits than admission to the museum, from special access to events to a discount in the shop for their own gift hunting. Many museums rely on purchased memberships to keep promoting rich local culture, so by supporting yours you ensure that it can grow and improve with the community itself.
