Doors open at 10:30am | Click HERE to Register
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of fellowship with friends and lunch from Ruth’s Kitchen. Joe Vinson, designer of Lost Pensacola, will be presenting a poster series highlighting beloved Pensacola landmarks that have been lost to time, whether by fire, storm, or demolition. Each poster in the project is designed in a graphic style that would have been appropriate during the building’s heyday. Joe is a native Pensacolian and local history aficionado who started the website Pensapedia. Lost Pensacola was his capstone project for the Public History master’s program at the University of West Florida, and he was selected as one of the “Emerging Artists” of the 2022 Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival. An exhibit of twelve Lost Pensacola posters opened at the Voices of Pensacola Multicultural Center in October 2022. The project was awarded the Florida Historical Society’s 2023 David C. Brotemarkle Award for creative expressions of Florida history. Register online or to the church office by October 22.
