Strangers in a Strange Land: Picturing Florida’s History Through Art by Mallory O’Connor
“Look” for Florida in this lecture of the many eccentric images that tell the story of our state. Strangers in a Strange Land explores Florida’s art history and rich visual mythology. These images span centuries of time and attest to both the vivid imagination of the artists and the equally flamboyant narratives centered on our state. This program is a partnership between the Florida Humanities and the Key West Art and History Museum.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
Date/time: October 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presented By:Mallory O'Connor, Scholar
