“Doris Leeper: Legacy of a Visionary” examines the accomplishments of this charismatic woman and assesses her contributions to Florida’s cultural life and to the preservation of its natural environment. It contains a chronology of Leeper’s artistic career with photos of her work and a full exhibit list; a narrative history of her environmental work, including accounts of the political battles she waged to achieve the national park designation for Canaveral Seashores and to establish Atlantic Center for the Arts, an internationally-recognized artist residency; and interviews with friends and colleagues who worked with Leeper—and sometimes against her—to achieve these goals. Additional materials include personal letters from Doc and critical essays written about her work. Published by the Florida Historical Society.

4 PM: Meet the authors of “Doris Leeper: Legacy of a Visionary” at a reading and book signing, featuring ACA Trustee Patricia Appleton, Dr. James Murphy, Clay Henderson and Amy Galpin.
