LiterARTure: Art & Literature Series
Explore how the visual arts and literature influence and reflect universal themes with our LiterARTure Series
LiterARTure is information-packed and peppered with
a healthy dose of wit!
LiterARTure was born in 2016, when we were sitting outside the San Marco Starbucks in Jacksonville, Florida, bemoaning the lack of civil discourse in our world.
Not the type to bemoan too, too much, we came up with an idea. “What if we married books and art, showing what we, as Americans, have in common?” Since then, using that template, we’ve presented numerous examples based on different themes in our annual LiterARTure series.
We’re delighted to open the 2023 series with Girls Gone Rogue at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida Building, 245 Riverside Ave., in the beautiful Riverfront Room overlooking the St. Johns.
