University of North Florida Seaside Sculpture Park

This park is a partnership between UNF’s Division of Student Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Lazzara Family Foundation and MountainStar, with assistance from the city of Jacksonville Beach and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville and is the only one of its kind on private land in the area. Students go through a rigorous decision process that ends with presenting a miniature model to a large panel in hopes of bringing them to a larger scale, like the park.

“The students compete annually for the spots and we have a competition where they present in front of a selection committee, and then we choose the best ones and display them for a year,” said Sculpture Professor Jenny Hager. see:
