Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts information
Dedicated to Florida writer and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston (1881–1960), born here in Eatonville and famous for her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. This tiny one-room museum features changing exhibits of African American artists.
While the museum itself attracts folks with particular interests in the author, African American studies or a specific exhibit, the museum sponsored Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities (www.zorafestival.org) attracts thousands for a multiday family-friendly celebration every January.
