Knowledge & Nibbles – The History of the Arts in Tarpon Springs

Location: Cultural Center

 

**** MOVED TO TARPON SPRINGS CULTURAL CENTER (101. S. Pinellas Ave.)

Tarpon Springs has an extraordinarily rich history in the arts for such a small coastal town; from the visual arts to architecture, folklife, film, music, and even the culinary arts. The legacy of the arts in Tarpon Springs began in the 1890s when George Inness, one of the best-known artists in America, put the name Tarpon Springs on many of his paintings. In the early 20th century, the arrival of Greek immigrants added to the cultural diversity of the City. Today Tarpon Springs is a nurturing community for artists, as proudly acknowledged through the contributions of favorite son artist Christopher Still.
