CUSP. TURNING POINT. PRECIPICE.

These are all words on the tip of everyone’s tongue

these days to describe the renaissance happening in

Jacksonville’s urban core. While these words are inspiring,

they also confer that we are at a crossroads.

We can move forward as a city, or move backward.

At jack Magazine, we want to be a platform in support

of the entrepreneurs and creatives working to

move Jacksonville forward. We want to help this city round the corner, as it enters

a new chapter of culture and growth. We want to celebrate the pioneers, both big

and small, that invested in our city neighborhoods decades ago, and highlight the

new ventures that are igniting the city today.

I love living in the urban core. My family and I moved from Amelia Island five years

ago to Riverside in search of a city vibe. One of my first missions in our new city

was to find an independent coffee shop near our house. As a writer and mother

desperate for a place to work outside of the bustle of home, I was shocked to learn

that there wasn’t one in Riverside. Then, about six months later Bold Bean opened.

It was a game changer, and not just because the coffee was awesome. It provided

a community space that resonated deeply with its patrons as a place of sharing.

It quickly became a place of connectivity, which is in alignment with the upward

trend of our city neighborhoods over the past five years. Every day the urban

core of Jacksonville becomes more vibrant with new places and opportunities to

connect as a community, thanks to people working together to build a new era of

creative growth. At jack, we want to share their stories.

jack is a monthly resource for urbanites, and suburbanites alike, to get the scoop

on where to go and what to do in our city. It is a publication designed to connect

readers with the people, places and organizations transforming our urban core. It’s

a voice for the Bold New City of the South, so let’s get talking.

Cheers,

BRINGING CLASSICAL MUSIC

TO THE MILLENNIAL MASSES

Jacksonville Symphony’s Jennifer Behr talks about the next generation of listeners

By Courtney Clark

Illustration by Roosevelt Watson III

The Jacksonville Symphony, a nonprofit orchestra, is revamping its programs to appeal to the millennial generation of music lovers. After a

rebranding last year, the new mantra is “reimagining what a Symphony can be.” In always looking to remain meaningful and personal to all types

of audiences, the organization has aimed to be more affordable, start diversity committees and more.

We asked Jennifer Behr, Director of Patron Engagement, a few questions on the work she and Courtney Lewis have been spearheading

to make the symphony hipper to a younger audience and more accessible to all.

jack: How is classical music faring with

the millennial generation?

Jennifer Behr: We are very open to new

experiences and care about the role that arts

and culture plays in our lives. I think the

issue with classical music is that our generation

is only starting to form its own traditions

and culture around the classical music

experience. Musicians are doing incredible,

fun and innovative things, and our generation

is starting to make the experience into

its own.

jack: What is the Symphony doing to

make the genre more accessible?

JB: We’re breaking down the price barrier

by offering two weeks of free community

concerts, and also with offers like our Under

18 Free ticketing programs … We’ve started

to offer Sunday Matinees so that families can

attend concerts together … We’re shaking

up traditions of a typical Symphony concert

with our Symphony in 60 series — shortening

the concert to one hour after work,

featuring one piece of music … and serving

drinks on-stage following the performance.

These are just a few things happening right

now, and we’ll continue to evolve with our

community as we find new ways to inspire

and connect people with music.

jack: Why is classical music important?

JB: Music represents culture, the way of life

that we work and even fight for. Classical

music is relevant and important because it

gives our lives texture beyond what it takes

to meet our basic needs. It reflects and

awakens our deepest emotions, takes them

to new heights and inspires new ways of

thinking or even action. Those experiences

are uniquely human, and what could be

more universal, uniting and relevant than

the thing that reminds us of the joys of our

humanity in the first place?

jack: What is UpTempo?

JB: UpTempo is the symphony’s Young

Professionals program, and we are creating

a symphony experience that is aligned with

the interests and lifestyles of the next generation

of concert-goers. Each month, our

members meet up for a concert that a small

group choses at the beginning of the year

… They enjoy pre-receptions, sit together in

a group and sometimes even continue the

evening over a late-night dinner with our

musicians.

jack: What is one thing about the

Jacksonville Symphony you want people

to know?

JB: We are able to do what we do, because

thousands of people across the First Coast

who support us believe in the power of

music to enrich the human spirit. Thank

you to our wonderful friends who are leading

the way for us during this exciting time.

To those who don’t know us so well, or

have known us in the past and we haven’t

you seen lately, it’s a new era. Come give

your symphony a try. I think you’re going

to like it.

jacked up I street talk

Transforming Jacksonville one wall at a time

By Kerry Speckman

Photography by Renee Parenteau

Nico Holderbaum discovered mural painting almost by accident. The South Florida native went to art school but was so moved by the work of

friends who were graffiti artists, she stepped out of her comfort zone and tried it for herself. Holderbaum freely admits, “I wasn’t good at it,”

but she did find the concept of public art appealing.

Dustin Harewood shares a similar story. When he

began his career as a professional artist more

than a decade ago, he focused on painting and

charcoal drawings. Aside from enjoying the

work of his colleagues, he hadn’t really considered

murals as an artistic outlet until he was

approached about painting a mural as part of a neighborhood

beautification project in Springfield.

Though their paths were different, Holderbaum’s and

Harewood’s personal “discovery” of mural painting reflects the

emergence of Jacksonville’s public art scene, especially the

growing popularity of murals.

A decade ago, there were only a handful of “legitimate” (in

the legal sense of the word) murals in the city with the majority

found in the urban core. Today, there are at least 30 large-scale

murals throughout the city, many of which were commissioned

(i.e., artists received compensation for their work).

In Harewood’s case, mural painting served a specific purpose,

namely, “turning eye sores into focal points” in Springfield.

Others’ work, like Holderbaum’s “Greetings From Jacksonville,

Florida” on The Block Skate Supply in Riverside, help draw attention

to businesses.

But perhaps the most significant impact of murals is its ability

to bring art to the masses, some of whom have very little exposure

to the arts. Through engagement with murals, a neighborhood’s

creative energy is more palpable to the passerby.

“Public art is unique in that it’s unavoidable,” photographer

Ben Whitlock says, who created a website (jaxmurals.com)

that of a nationally recognized

art city.”

specifically to give credit and exposure to

local artists and their murals.

Harewood agrees. It’s a challenge, he

says, to get the public into art galleries

and museums to see an artist’s work.

With murals, on the other hand, the art is

brought to the public.

Driving along East Adams Street in

Downtown, you can’t help but see Shaun

Thurston’s “Earth Gods” mural: a giant

frog with half-human, half-reptile “hands”

cupping water holding up a fishing boat.

You may not understand the meaning

behind it — realizing humans do not control

the world and showing us we need to

live in harmony with the environment —

but you’re going to take notice.

“Murals inspire not just the artist but

everybody. They affect people in a lot

of ways,” Holderbaum says. “Whether

you’re creating or viewing [a piece of

art], there’s an emotional reaction. It

might be the subject matter or even the

combination of colors.”

And because murals are on public display

and not taken down like works at

exhibitions in galleries and museum, they

continue to impact a community for years

to come. Case in point: years after painting

murals, Harewood says it continues to

create a dialog within the neighborhood

and prompt feedback from viewers.

Left: Jessica Santiago is art dealer and the CEO

of Wall Street Fine Art, which just opened a

gallery downtown last month, and founder of

Art Republic.

Right: The Grow mural in Murray Hill was

created by Kate Rose Willink and Brenna Noel

Martin of the Ronoco Collective.

Mural artists describe the proliferation

of public art as a natural progression

for the city. “It’s an exciting time to be

in Jacksonville,” Harewood says. “[The

mural scene] used to be sparse. There

were maybe one or two artists working

on them. But today there are so many

more opportunities and resources for

established and up-and-coming artists. It’s

like it has been bubbling up under the

surface, and this is just the beginning of a

wave that is coming. It’s contagious.”

In Murray Hill, for example, graphic

designer Jason Tetlak started the Murray

Hill mural project. Though his original

inspiration came from the Wynwood Arts

District in Miami, he sees the need for

public art to connect to residents as the

neighborhood continues to grow. Three

murals have been completed, he says,

with plans to do at least three more.

And that wave is going to continue,

if Jessica Santiago has anything to say

about it. Santiago, consultant-curator at

Wall Street Fine Art, founded and organized

Art(re)Public, a four-day festival,

November 10 – 13 in the urban core, to

promote public art, in particular, “traffic-stopping

murals.”

“I am fascinated by what street art has

done for other cites around the world

to unify the community, revitalize areas

as well as develop economies,” Santiago

says. “Murals are a part of the fabric of

every major city, and Jacksonville is full of

great blank canvases.”

As a native of Jacksonville, Santiago

could think of no place better than the

urban core for her inaugural event. “The

Jacksonville community has been let

down by many decisions made in regards

to our downtown. I wanted the community

to feel empowered that we can create

change ourselves,” she says. “Murals are

a perfect way for us to change our city

image to that of a nationally recognized

art city. Our downtown needs a lot of

help and this is one small way we can be

the change we want to see.”

the Martha Washington Hotel and its heroic

preservation? Visit jaxpsychogeo.com

THE MARTHA WASHINGTON HOTEL

A story of evolution and salvation

By Tim Gilmore, Photography courtesy of Wayne Wood

Brenda Kelly has lived in her corner of the Martha Washington Hotel since it was converted into condos in 1981. She is the last original tenant of the

Martha as condominiums. She watched the units develop after hers and knows the layout of the century-old congeries perhaps more intimately

than anybody else. She lived there when the sprawling back of the complex was rotting away behind the original mansion, and a homeless

carpenter employed in the latter portion’s reconstruction squatted in a back unit and lit bonfires inside on winter nights.

18 jack november 2016


She was there several years ago when

two tenants fought late at night, and one

of them fell through the original glass in

the foyer’s front door. She resided there

when her piano tuner shared a memory

from decades before, when he’d taken

his first piano lessons there in the post-

World War II boarding house days, and

he used to ride his bike up and down

the central stairs.

Brenda also remembers that she is not

the Martha Washington’s only Brenda.

Timothy Dalton and Brooke Shields

starred in a 1989 movie called “Brenda

Starr,” in which the unit across from

Brenda Kelly’s was transformed into the

Oval Office for the film. Among Brenda’s

memories living there are progressive

cocktail parties from the early 1980s, and

the fact that Brooke Shields was very gracious

and down-to-earth.

The core of the structure is the original

three-story mansion, built in 1911 for

lumber magnate Bryan Blount, with its

two-story Doric columns, high dormers,

and deep and vast veranda. In 1938, a

long addition stretched from the back of

the mansion, and the building became

the Martha Washington Hotel. In counterpoint

to the tall George Washington

Hotel downtown, the Martha Washington

admitted only women. During World War

II, however, the hotel became a boarding

house that specialized in housing servicemen

and their families.

After World War II, the Martha

Washington entered decades of decline as

a boarding house. In 1974, Wayne Wood

interviewed H.W. Strickland who had

been leasing the rambling shambles for

14 years. Wood remembers Strickland’s

business model as “something between

an old folks’ home and a boarding

house,” that was home to 25 or 30 residents.

In 1976, the old building contained

four parlors, two dining rooms, a butler’s

pantry, seven fireplaces, a wraparound

veranda and 29 rental units, including

the garage apartment in the old carriage

house. Today, part of the cavernous

porch has been enclosed and forms

the kitchen and dining room of Brenda

Kelly’s condo. The original parlors are

boxed into separate units, and the building

is comprised of 11 condos.

At the time of Wood’s interview,

Riverside Baptist Church owned the dilapidated

1911 mansion and 1938 hotel addition.

In 1976, the church decided to tear it

all down for a parking lot. Wayne Wood,

then a young optometrist who’d recently

spearheaded the formation of Riverside

Avondale Preservation (RAP), offered,

according to the June 1978 RAP newsletter

“to personally pay to cover the wrecking

company’s cost to immediately stop the

King St.

demolition.” Such was the end of untold

numbers of beautiful old buildings across

Riverside Avondale and other historic

neighborhoods in the “white flight” and

suburban explosion of the latter half of

the 20th century. Just two years before, in

1974, Riverside Avondale Preservation had

formed to fight such losses.

Wayne remembers the episode as “the

most dramatic victory in RAP’s entire history,”

he says. “We stood outside and watched

as the wrecking ball swung back. If the ball

had hit one more time, it would’ve caved

the wall in. It had already done some damage

with the first swing. But just as the ball

swung back to hit the building again, the

chain broke.” At nine a.m. that following

morning, as protestors marched with placards

before the old hotel, Miller met Wayne

and two other RAP members at the Martha

Washington and accepted their proposal to

save the building.

The Martha’s lived numerous lives —

those of Southern aristocrats, World War II

servicemen, indigent elderly women and

21st century hipsters. If that chain on the

wrecking ball hadn’t given way, Riverside

would have only another parking lot here

to wonder about. The Martha Washington

wasn’t ready to give up the ghost. She

had more living to do.

ON THE ROAD

TO BAKING

Community Loaves is an organic bakery

nestled in the Murray Hill neighborhood

of Jacksonville. They bake cakes. They

make a mean quiche. The bakery has

farm fresh salads, pesto grilled cheese

sandwiches, and even serve coffee. Every

day, the staff bakes sourdough bread,

fresh pastries and pies using seasonal and

local produce.

It’s pie season, so I sat down to talk

with owner and baker Meredith Corey-

Disch to talk shop.

By Nate Mayo

Photography by Bob Self

Community Loaves’ owner and baker, Meredith Corey-Disch

A couple of years ago, I saw a post on Facebook by Community Loaves; they were

looking for a little fruit called calamondin. It’s like a little lemon orange. My family calls

them calamansi, and we have three massive calamansi trees at my old house. So, after

harvesting a box full, I brought them in and traded them for cookies, bread, brownies,

slices of apple pie … I loved it. We were bartering like old days; fruit for baked goods. I

brought along a bag of blood oranges and grapefruits, as well; You know, just in case.

That experience sums up the vibe of this neighborhood bakery.

I opened with the most important

question: “What do you love about making

pies?” Meredith thinks about it, looks

around and yells, eyes wide: “Butter! I

love making pie crust … Pie crust seemed

like the easiest thing to make, but people

are intimidated by them and end up

buying a pre-made crust.” Simplicity is the

key to creating the perfect pie.

“I love that you can make the simplest,

easiest pie in the world and people are

like you made this?” she says. “I love

when there is fruit in season, and you can

just use a ton of it in the dessert, or pie,

and it doesn’t have to be more complicated

than cold butter, flour, and fruit.”

Meredith made her first pie when she

was 13; an apple pie from her mother’s

Martha Stewart cookbook. She grew up in

a home where processed foods and soda

were not allowed, but pie was another

story. There was always fruit and butter

in the house, so pie was her sweet treat.

Apple pie is still her favorite. She is a

master at it. Two years ago, I had this

apple pie from Community Loaves. It was

a work of art; the top crust was made to

look like leaves. “It was too beautiful to

eat” … said me not ever. When I bit into

it, there was a hint of lemon that set it off.

Meredith didn’t remember the pie when I

brought it up, but I have pictures. Proof is

in the pie.

“I’ve always been a sweets fanatic. It

makes sense that I own a bakery, because

I have a sugar addiction,” she says.

Meredith began delivering bread by

bike door-to-door. Then she grew to

open a stall at the Riverside Arts Market,

to building her brick-and-mortar bakery

and café.

I asked her: “When was your ‘Aha!’

moment when you knew it was time to

open Community Loaves?”

“There was never a moment where

I was like, ‘I want a storefront and a

café,’” she says. She was staying on a

farm and read a book called “So You

Think You Can Farm.” The book had

a message: if you’re someone who is

obsessed with starting a farm, the reality

is running a farm is running a small

business. Wherever you are, you can gain

the skills to farm by running a small business.

“So, I knew that I wanted to find

a skill I could use to start a small business,”

she says. “Then after that I went

to a sourdough bakery; I got to be the

apprentice. It helped that I totally loved

the family. I had such a good time there.

I enjoyed baking so much. I enjoyed their

lifestyle, and I just read that book. So all

those things happening together made me

think, ‘Oh, this is it.” I don’t have to move

on a farm at 23 years old.’”

“So...this is your farm?” I asked.

“This is my farm.” j

BEHIND

THE SCENES AT

COMMUNITY

LOAVES

Nate Mayo is the guru

behind nomnomjax.com

and we are stoked to

have him onboard with us

at Jack. Check out

jackaboutjax.com to see

the killer video he made

on site at Community

Loaves, and get a peek

at what this urban core

bakery has cooking behind

the scenes.

What is the craziest thing to happen

in Community Loaves’ kitchen?

A 3:30 a.m. phone call from Meredith’s

morning crew alerted her that a pipe had

busted, but her phone was broken. She

woke up at 5:30 a.m. to find her $20,000

oven flooded. She fixed the pipe herself,

and after mopping for what seemed forever,

they had things dried up. Fingers crossed,

they waited and let the oven dry out. It

worked, and they were back in business.

Did You Know?

Biscottis is now serving

liquor. That’s right,

cocktails are on the menu

at this iconic urban core

restaurant. It is no small

feat considering that due

to current regulations,

permission to serve

liquor is not available to

small, intimate dining

establishments in our city.

Stop by and have a drink

to celebrate their win, and

cheers to more wins like it!

Biscottis’

TURKEY

Local favorite on the menu since 1993

SANDWICH

Written and Photographed by Anthony Kirkpatrick

What is Thanksgiving tradition to you?

The Thanksgiving holiday helps bring family and friends together

to bond over good food and good conversation. If you’re like me,

the food is the best part. Whether it’s braised, baked, deep-fried,

grilled or smoked, the turkey is the centerpiece. But after the feast,

the leftovers take the stage. Digging into grandma’s macaroni

and cheese and cranberry sauce for a couple more days. Making

sandwiches with the leftover turkey. Eventually, the inevitable

happens and the food runs out.

But turkey sandwiches are always on the menu at

Biscottis in Avondale. Its Smoked Turkey Sandwich

is not only a customer favorite, but like turkey on

Thanksgiving, it has a tradition of its own. Since

the opening of Biscottis in 1993, this sandwich has

been a staple on the menu. Just think about that

for a moment. With so much change that goes on,

from customers coming and going to food trends constantly

changing — for a dish like this to still be a favorite on the

menu over two decades later speaks volumes.

The Smoked Turkey Sandwich is a simple sandwich, but a

sandwich that hits all the right notes. Each layer of ingredients

meld together to make a very flavorful dish. The vibrant flavor

of the marinated tomatoes, combined with the smoked turkey

and sprouts, add a nice crisp nutty taste paired with the sharp

bite of the aged provolone. A smear of mustard and mayonnaise

bring it all together making each bite fantastic. Diners

have the choice to enjoy the sandwich cold or as a melt, and

keeping up with the times, Biscottis also has a gluten-free

option for all their sandwiches.

Its menu has many tasty sides to accompany the dish.

On the healthy side, guests have a choice of field green,

Caesar or pasta salad. If someone is searching for the taste of

Thanksgiving, then sweet potato fries are the perfect pairing

with the sandwich.
