In celebration of the holiday season and Nights of Lights, the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum teams up with the St. Augustine Art Association to present festive displays on the fireplace walls of the historic property. The decorations will be displayed from November 18, 2023, through January 5, 2024. The museum is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
Fourteen local artists will each create a design to decorate one mantle and adjacent wall, including Melissa Whitehead, Martha Ferguson, Gwen Mehler, Judy Vance, and Flagler College Fine Arts Department.
The Ximenez-Fatio House was built during St. Augustine's Second Spanish Period and houses period-appropriate collections and furnishings.
The St. Augustine Art Association was founded on January 18, 1924, during a meeting at the Ximenez-Fatio House. It is fitting that the start of STAA's centennial celebration begins with a collaboration between the two organizations.
Their website has a link to purchase tickets for "Historic Holiday House Tours."
