Put The Brush Down!

On October 4 -10, thirty miles north in Jacksonville Florida, artists will meet in various points around the city to capture the scene in oils, acrylics and watercolor. This type of event for plein air artists happens all across the country. Unfortunately, St. Augustine chooses not only to ignore the aesthetic enhancement that this event provides but to ignore and prohibit artist's First Amendment rights.

Here in St. Augustine most of the historical district has been declared off limits to artists with the criminal penalties being up sixty days in jail and a five hundred dollar fine.Link
