Interpreting Northeast Florida:
A Historic Mural by Elmer Grey

Naval Air Station Jacksonville and the Museum of Science & History will unveil a fully restored historic mural by artist and architect Elmer Grey. Measuring in at 35-feet long, the oil on canvas mural illustrates the influence of Spanish and French colonization on Northeast Florida. Painted by Grey as a gift to the Navy at World War II’s beginning, the mural was displayed at NAS Jax in the Bachelor Officers’ Quarters until 2011 when it was removed for conservation. The newly restored mural is on long-term loan from NAS Jax and will be installed in the Wells Fargo Conference Room at MOSH. The installation will feature digital interpretation of the historic Timucua, Spanish, French and St. Augustine scenes depicted in the mural; Elmer Grey’s biographical information; and an overview of the mural’s restoration.
