Established by the Florida Legislature in 1986, the Florida Artists Hall of Fame recognizes persons, living or deceased, who have made significant contributions to the arts in Florida either as performing or practicing artists in individual disciplines.
The artist may be a native of the state or one who adopted Florida as home. Recipients of this award demonstrate the diversity of artistic accomplishment that comprises the rich cultural tapestry of this state. Previous inductees include Zora Neale Hurston, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Ernest Hemingway and Ray Charles.
Inductions to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame are made each March during the Florida Heritage Awards. Inductees receive a commemorative bronze sculpture commissioned by the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. The sculpture, La Florida, was created by Enzo Torcoletti, an artist residing in St. Augustine.
