Historic City, Historic Art
St Augustine is known as the oldest city in America with a rich background dating back centuries. It is easy to find art within the buildings, monuments placed throughout the city, and within some of the large galleries. The St Augustine Art Association (STAAA) is on a mission to keep the history alive within their gallery. With different exhibits making their way to their walls they make a point to feature art with history-rich images in their permanent historical exhibit. Their mission is to continue the artistic heritage of St Augustine by offering excellent displays, educational programs, and more to the public.
