Art historian, Mallory O’Connor, presents a “Look” at Florida through 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.

Mallory O’Connor is a Professor Emerita of Art History at Santa Fe College. She has organized numerous exhibits on Florida history and art including: Florida Before Columbus, Opening the Door to a New World: Mark Catesby in La Florida, The Great Alachua Savanna: A Visual History of Paynes Prairie, The Art of Hope: WPA Art in Florida, and The Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art.

This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks: At Home! program.
