Jacksonville's Great Oak to Come to Its End
Episcopal Great Oak | Jacksonville, Florida
Unframed - 23 x 11 ¾ in. $135 | Framed and matted - 26 x 13 ½ in. $275
The remarkable Great Oak of Jacksonville's Episcopal High School is a lasting memory for students and parents since the school's founding in 1966. It was the school's center piece symbolizing so much of what the school represented.
The Episcopal community dedicated the plaza at the Great Oak as a tribute to principal Dale Regan in 2013. The Regan Plaza protected and preserved the root system of the Great Oak, which was hundreds of years old, and provided a safe place under the spreading branches of the tree for quiet reflection or study.
However, the decision was made in late 2014 to take the tree down for safety reasons. Huge weathered branches had begun to rot and fall endangering students and visitors who passed beneath its spreading canopy.
Hand crafted in exquisite detail each print is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Limited to only 5,000 prints and 100 giclées. This latest work will no doubt become a collectible as has previous Stephen Malkoff art. A portion of the proceeds will go to restore and protect our historic trees on the school's campus.
Visit the Gallery Shop to purchase a print either unframed or custom framed with triplle matting. All prints are lithographed on 100% acid-free Strathmore museum-quality paper.
