The Art and Illustrations of Zelda Fitzgerald

2013 Exhibit Dates
Nov 14 To Dec 15

Widely recognized as an icon of the Jazz Age, Zelda Fitzgerald was also an artist, writer and dancer. Though she had the freedom to explore her own aspirations during her marriage to literary giant F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda's pursuits were often overlooked or discounted. This exhibition celebrates Zelda Fitzgerald's creative life and artwork and features cityscapes, fairy tales, biblical images and more, all gouache on paper. This collection is on loan from Cecilia Ross, granddaughter of Zelda Fitzgerald, and presented in collaboration with the James V. Brown Library initiative, "One Book, One Community."
