Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, will give a talk on Sunday, December 15 at 2 pm. He will discuss two of the museum's current exhibitions: "The Mythology of Florida" and Annie Collinge's "The Underwater Mermaid Theater."

"The Mythology of Florida," on view through January 5, is a collection of photographs which explores the legends of the eponymous state. The exhibit includes work by Warren Thompson, Lisa Kereszi, Walker Evans, Joseph Janney Steinmetz, Lisa Elmaleh, Todd Bertolaet, and Micheal Carlebach.

Collinge, a Brooklyn-based photographer, traveled to Florida to document the "mermaids" at Weeki Wachee Springs, one of the state's oldest tourist attractions. The show will remain up until January 5.

The event is free and open to the public.

Event Time: 2 pm
