MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART / JACKSONVILLEwww.MOCAjacksonville.org CALL FOR NOMINATIONS MOCA Jacksonville’s 2010Memphis Wood Excellence in Teaching AwardWinner receives: $1,000 cash award, free museum tour for class, and award plaque Memphis WoodKnown as Jacksonville’s First Lady of Art, Memphis Wood made an astonishing contribution to art and art education in Jacksonville that is still felt today. As a one-woman force in building an appreciation for the arts, Memphis taught and influenced many of Jacksonville’s most successful artists. Until her death in 1989, Memphis had worked for over 60 years in Jacksonville as an artist in many media—painting, pottery, sculpture, jewelry design, printmaking, and imaginative fabric collages. Memphis Wood’s connection to MOCA Jacksonville was long and personal, both as one of its founding trustees and as a longtime studio art teacher. MOCA believes that visual art is a vital component of P-12 education. It is important not only as a distinct discipline, but also as a means of promoting student learning through integrating into other academic disciplines. Building on Memphis Wood’s devotion to art, art education, her community leadership and her conviction that art should be accessible to all, MOCA is proud to offer this annual award in her honor. Eligibility The competition is open to all P-12 educators in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St. Johns counties.
