Press Release
 
 This collaborative project between Flagler students and artist Edgar Endress (Associate Professor of Art, George Mason University) considers Spanish colonization in Florida,specifically the implementation of Baroque as the mechanism of cultural andreligious dominance in the Spanish colonies. The project researches the Baroque through the icons of the historical dominant culture in St. Augustine. These visual and verbal forms are dynamic, porous, and permeable, incorporating the cultural perspectives and iconographies of the indigenous and African laborers and artisans who built and decorated Catholic structures.
