Tom Schifanella: Faces of the Alcazar

Oct. 29 – March 7, 22

“Faces of the Alcazar” presents a compelling glimpse of life behind-the-scenes at Henry Flagler’s Alcazar Hotel. Through large-format photographic prints, the exhibition documents fragmentary clippings from early-20th century motion picture magazines pasted to the walls of the Alcazar staff quarters by the immigrant staff who lived and worked at the hotel. The crumbling magazine remnants remain a haunting visual record of the dreams and aspirations of the forgotten individuals who served the wealthy visitors wintering in  St. Augustine at the dawn of the 20th century.
