Jazz’d will be moving from Brick City Center for the Arts to a new home soon.
After many years of living with Marion Cultural Alliance, Jazz’d will finally find a permanent home this year. MCA is holding a chance drawing that anyone who gets a ticket has the opportunity to have Jazz’d live at their home, business, or school. This beautiful work of art will be making its final tour of Ocala to various events this summer giving everyone a chance to say farewell and get a ticket to win. (Look for “JAZZ’D” in the Cultural Calendar for his itinerary.)
Drawing will be held during the Saluting the Arts Expo and Breakfast, Wednesday, September 18, 7:30 to 9 A.M. at the Ocala Hilton in the Breakfast Tent.
Tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100 (cash or check only) and are available at:
MCA Office located at Brick City Center for the Arts Gallery 23 SW Broadway St. Ocala.
Gallery hours: Tuesday through Friday 11a.m. to 6p.m. Saturday 11a.m. to 4p.m.

MCA would like to recognize Daryl Collier, who has completed two terms on the Board of Directors as Treasurer. An early and consistent supporter of not only the arts, but the downtown revitalization, Daryl has been on the downtown scene since the early 1990’s. Prior to the formation of MCA, Daryl supported OASC, the Ocala Arts & Sciences Coalition supporting Brick City Center for the Arts and the Discovery Science Center when they were operated by Central Florida Community College. Daryl is truly an arts enthusiast, and was a regular attendee of Bag it at the Brick, one of the most popular programs at Brick City during that time.
Over the years Daryl not only gave of his time and professional expertise, but made a personal commitment through the purchase of “Hi Ho Silver Springs”, from the Horse Fever – In Motion collection created by Kelly Money Huff. This horse stands outside of the office of Daryl’s firm, Collier, Jernigan & Godert, who through donation of their monthly services over a number of years, is one of MCA’s largest contributors.
If you want to say a word of thanks to this dedicated volunteer, come to the opening reception for Historical Ocala, opening at Brick City Center for the Arts March 9, from 11am – 3pm. The show features local artists, authentic Florida cuisine, and speakers from the Marion County Museum of Natural History and Archeology, Ft. King Restoration Society, Silver River Museum, and Historic Ocala Preservation Society. This show is the brainchild of Daryl, who is always looking for new ways to bring culture to light.
We look forward to seeing and hearing from Daryl in the future as an advisor to the Board of Directors, and active member of MCA.
