Augusta Savage

I can remember my High School art teacher talking about this woman and the impact she had on NE Florida art. Augusta Savage was creating beautiful sculptures, and making a name for herself at a time when women (much less black women) were not recognized as "serious" artists.

Her story is truly an inspirational one, and she is being honored this weekend as one of Clay County's own. Here's my tribute. Enjoy.
