{CTS} creative thriftshop is proud to announce artist Jeremy Dean will be an invited guest speaker at the Florida Carriage Museum on Monday, February 14, 2011 (10 am-noon) alongside celebrated collector and horseman Steve Wilson of 21c Museum.

The lecture is entitled Steve Wilson:  Way out, man! Steve Wilson will talk about the challenges of collecting and exhibiting modern art and tell of his very special horse-drawn Hummer that is on exhibition in the Florida Carriage Museum. Learn about the inspiration from the artist that created this exceptional work and see this exceptional “Hummer” up close.


about museum: The Florida Carriage Museum are dedicated to a common mission. Many call it a passion: To educate, celebrate and preserve the history of the horse and its role in shaping world civilizations and changing lives. That’s what we are about and that is what we do. Founded in 1995 by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Gloria Austin, the Florida Carriage Museum & Resort is a carriage museum, driving, riding, and education center, equine resort and home to the not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Equine Heritage Institute, Inc.

about collector: Born out of a love of contemporary art; a desire to create alternative downtown spaces that prevent urban sprawl; a belief that art should be accessible, interactive and without pretense, 21c Museum Hotel in Downtown Louisville has established itself as a nationally recognized destination for contemporary art. With the generous aid of private collectors and founders of 21c Museum, Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, 21c has been able to share its collection with the international art community. It is the mission of 21c to promote contemporary art for all audiences and through its relationships with other institutions, we hope to continue in this endeavor.

about the artist: Jeremy Dean has built a reputation for exploring the American dream and human progress through art. Deconstructing and re-contextualizing iconic symbols of power and wealth, his work addresses social, political, economic and cultural issues. Dean received his BFA from Flagler Collegeand attended an intensive film program before embarking on the six year journey of creating the truly independent feature film Dare Not Walk Alone which received numerous awards and a theatrical release. He was inducted into the Writers Guild of America 2008 and was recently given a special film screening at BAM. He has been exhibited nationally in galleries, museums, and art fairs. His latest work Back to the Futurama exhibited during Armory Week in New York to a great deal of fan fare. Having been deemed the darling of the press as of late his work has been featured in The New York Times, The New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, Art in America, Art Slant, Current TV, ABC World Report, Huffington Post, Reuters, and countless blogs and niche media.
