Program Description:

Florida has an especially rich visual mythology, images that span centuries of time and attest to both the vivid imagination of the artists who have sought to capture the essence of an exotic and colorful landscape and the equally flamboyant narratives that have fueled the region’s reputation for novelty and eccentricity. Join Dr. Mallory O’Connor for this lecture and discussion, we will be “looking for Florida” among the many different images that tell the story of a fabled and fabulous land. But “who” is Florida? And how do we discover her “real” face?
