featuring 500 Years of Florida’s History - In celebration of the 500th anniversary of Florida’s discovery by Ponce De Leon, Bonnet House commemorates the event with a special art exhibit titled, “Viva Florida 500 Best in Show Series.” The exhibit–which is only one of hundreds of events occurring year-round– features artwork inspired by 500 years of Florida history, dating back to its discovery by Leon’s convoy in 1513. While the history of Florida’s Native Americans dates back even further, Spain’s discovery in 1513 paved the way for generations to come. The goal of “Viva Florida” is to promote the 500 years of history through people, places and cultural achievements.
