  • The Creek District of Art & Entertainment are working with the City of Stuart to bring new mosaic artwork to the sidewalks of the district. There will be several mosaics installed in the area, and YOU have an opportunity to be directly involved in the selection of the artwork — or maybe you’d like to create a sidewalk mosaic yourself! The first two mosaics, created by program directors Diane Concepcion and Corina Pelloni, are scheduled for installation early 2022. But we need more designs from people like you! This program is a fantastic way to learn the art of mosaic and to contribute public art to The Creek District!

    Swamp Ape Review is a national online literary journal founded and produced by the MFA in creative writing students at Florida Atlantic University.

    The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
