Jacksonville has incredible cultural resources like The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and MOCA Jacksonville. Still, our arts community, though fairly incredible, struggles to receive even a hint of recognition. Our artists have have to flee Jacksonville to gain credibility. And, even when they do gain (national/international) recognition they are still ignored in their home town. What are we doing wrong? Will we ever be able to cultivate an art scene that rivals the world's best?
