JANE DAVIS DOGGETT - Florida Artists Hall of Fame
Jane Davis Doggett an internationally acclaimed graphic designer and outstanding artist trained at the Yale School of Art & Architecture. A pioneer in the field of architectural and environmental graphics design, she uses an innovative design approach. Doggett's original hand drawings are scanned in segments into Adobe Vector templates on an Apple computer, a design process she has termed electronic silk screening. Produced by the same computer process are landscape renderings that express natural environments in her experiences living by the water — which she calls Waterscapes©. Doggett was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2016.

The State Archives of Florida accessioned the Bruce Mozert Collection (N2018-20) in 2018. The collection contains approximately 25,000 negatives, thousands of prints and hundreds of films. A selection of Mozert’s photographs have been digitized and made available on FloridaMemory.com.
Museum of Florida History
Opened in 1977, the Museum of Florida History collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets evidence of past and present cultures in Florida, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of this heritage.
As the state history museum, it focuses on artifacts and eras unique to Florida's development and on roles that Floridians have played in national and global events.
Through exhibits, educational programs, research, and collections, the Museum reflects the ways that people have shaped and reacted to their cultural and natural environments. The newest attraction at the Museum is Phase 2 of the permanent exhibit Forever Changed: La Florida, 1513–1821. Phase 1 of Forever Changed opened in 2012 and featured the time period 1513–1565. The new exhibit explores a dynamic period in history—from the meeting and interaction of native and European cultures to Florida's adoption as a United States territory.
