Go the distance: Sea of Green by Doug Rhodehamel

Posted By on Thu, Nov 4, 2010 at 4:34 PM

Artist Doug Rhodehamel (aka the paper-bag mushroom guy) usually doesn’t have to worry about attendance at his openings, many of which are one-night installations. But the Friday, Nov. 5, reception for his latest project, Sea of Green, might be a different story, because it’s going to be an hour’s drive from Orlando at the Lake Eustis Museum of Art. Will his fans go the distance?

Our suggestion: Make a food stop when you get to Mount Dora, which is only a hop, skip and a jump away from lesser-known Eustis.

Here are recommendations from our Food & Drink editor and the leader of the Salivation Army blogJessica Bryce YoungMount Dora Goblin Market is nice (kinda fancy), and the Frosty Mug is fun. And owned by Icelandic women!”

And here is essential info pulled from the press release:

November 5, at a 6 – 9 p.m. opening, Rhodehamel debuts his "Sea of Green," an elusive, exclusive transformation of Lake Eustis Museum of Art into a gigantic, fabulous undersea world. Light, shadow, movement and 100s of Rhodehamel’s painted, hand cut paper fish drawn from his unique imagination and crafted from discards, make an extraordinary art experience.
