“Calling It Done” honors the legacy of James Weldon and J. Rosamond Johnson, located at Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing Park in the heart of the historic LaVilla neighborhood. Artist: Brian Owens (I took this photo so no need to credit a photographer).

The Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville administers the City of Jacksonville’s Art in Public Places Program mandated by City ordinance to acquire, procure, maintain, restore, install, and perform responsible stewardship of public art throughout the City.
