  • Description

    The Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts is named after Zora Neale Hurston – an African-America writer, folklorist, and anthropologist, who grew up in Eatonville, one of the first all-black self-governing towns in the USA.
    Hurston collected life stories of people from various cultures, especially from the African-American community. Inspired by her findings, Hurston wrote plays, novels, articles, and short stories. Her most famous book is ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God,’ published in 1937.
    At the museum, you can learn about Eatonville’s history and culture as well as Hurston’s life experiences throughout the years, including her childhood in Eatonville and her journeys to Haiti, Jamaica, and Honduras.
    The museum’s gallery displays rotating exhibits of African descent artists from the USA as well as the African diaspora. In addition to the annual Zora Festival, you can participate in gallery talks with artists, curators, and guest scholars.
