Tapestry: The Cultural Threads of First America is the 450th Commemoration signature exhibition that shares the story of how three intertwining cultures – Hispanics, Africans and Native Americans – came together to form the foundation of the American culture and create the blended society of today's St. Augustine and nation. The exhibition debuts during St. Augustine's 450th anniversary this year.
Beyond exploring St. Augustine's historical roots, the exhibition showcases the people who have shaped the city's cultural landscape throughout four and a half centuries. The histories and contemporary cultural expressions of the Menorcans, Greeks, British and others who are part of our city's rich heritage are woven nicely into the exhibition.
The state-of-the-art exhibition features authentic objects, original documents and interactive elements. The exhibtion anchors a citywide passport program that connects visitors, residents and students with important historical sites and programs throughout St. Augustine.
You can find the free exhibit inside the St. Augustine Visitor Information Center at 10 W Castillo Drive from April 4th through October the 4, 2015. Find more information regarding all of our scheduled 450th Commemoration events at
