Histories of Art and Activism: A Bus Tour of DeLand’s Past
In this two-hour long event, Drs. Emily Mieras and Andy Eisen, Stetson history department faculty, will lead a guided bus tour of DeLand. Focusing on art, activism, and African American history, Mieras and Eisen will explore the institutions that shape the town’s public history, recount stories left untold by DeLand’s commemorative plaques, courthouse paintings, and murals, as well as explore ongoing efforts to tell more complete histories of the town’s past. Participants will visit the African American Museum of the Arts, Historic Court House, and Painter’s Pond mural.
An RSVP is required for this event; all registered attendees will receive a light breakfast.
