Event Details

The
Zerbe Zelebration will be a citywide multi-media exhibition
of Expressionist Movement artist Karl Zerbe’s works as we mark the 50th
anniversary of his retirement from FSU. This Zelebration will
kick-off LeMoyne’s Chain of Parks Art Festival for 2021.  As a
world-renowned artist and FSU professor, Zerbe entrusted LeMoyne Arts with the
largest collection of his artwork in the world. LeMoyne Arts will be showing 7
never-before-seen pieces for the Zelebration, along with hosting
lectures and round table discussions on civil rights, Zerbe’s art journey, and
birding (Zerbe is best known in Tallahassee for his collection of bird
lithographs, inspired by his time at St. Marks Wildlife Sanctuary). The Chain
of Parks will also be posting multiple engaging social media activities, video
interviews, and educational material on their website and social
platforms. 

 

In-person and virtual exhibits featuring Karl
Zerbe and other artists he inspired can be found at LeMoyne Arts, Council on
Culture & Arts online gallery and Tallahassee International
Artport Gallery, FSU Museum of Fine Art, TCC Hurst Gallery, FAMU
Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery, and the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce. This
citywide Zelebration will inspire and strengthen our vibrant
community in a fun and Covid-safe way.
Come and enjoy all that the Zerbe Zelebration has to offer,
and enjoy tasting the German-inspired custom brew created by Proof
Brewing, in honor of Karl Zerbe’s German heritage. It will be available for
purchase at the festival and at venues that carry Proof Beer.
