A new work by Jacksonville metal artist Cheryl Garcia has been installed on the Britt hill. Titled “Brittilaria,” the sculpture was inspired by the frittilaria flower that grows in the Jacksonville Woodlands. “Brittilaria” is located near the entrance to the Britt hill, next to the Performance Garden. The work is on a long-term loan to Britt from Dr. Sean Kevin Roden and Mrs. Sonya Kay Roden. The sculpture was dedicated at a ceremony at Britt on April 10.
Red Lily poured wine for eventgoers.
