During Monday night’s St. Augustine City Commission Meeting, the Anonymous Society of Artists took part in a brief ceremony welcoming the group as new members of the 450th Commemoration Alliance. Mayor Joe Boles presented group founders Jean Drayovitch and Michael Clark with an official alliance contract, which they proudly signed.
On September 8, 2015, St. Augustine will celebrate its 450th anniversary as the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the United States. The St. Augustine 450th Commemoration is a four-year long celebration which began in 2012 and has continued into 2013 with the celebration of Ponce’s discovery of La Florida 500 years ago.
Allies of the 450th Commemoration are provided cross-promotional opportunities with the City and are allowed to use the official logo of the 450th. The Anonymous Society of Artists hopes to utilize this alliance to produce a large scale mural celebrating St. Augustine’s rich history.
