The Story Of Flagler College’s First 50 Years Told Through The People, Places And Things That Shaped It

Each of the 50 people, places and things that we selected represent a major milestone in the development of Flagler College. Our selections include the expected and the unexpected, ordinary, everyday objects and the extraordinary people that helped us turn nouns into verbs and change lives. Together, they tell our story. But it is not the complete story. Like all milestones, they indicate how far we have come. They do not measure the thousands of stepping stones, those everyday moments, the hard work and dedication, that got us to those key celebrated moments in our rich history.

The Art of the Matter

This work of art was created by one of Flagler College’s graduating Fine Arts students: Connor Bouchard, ‘17. It was shown as part of a bi-annual BFA exhibition showcasing students’ work presented in the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum located on the Flagler College Campus. It is one of many shows that give students from all art majors, including graphic design, a chance to show off their talents and have their work judged by professionals. This is just a small part of Flagler’s art programs that have grown in size and prestige. The departments are led by an award-winning faculty who exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally.
