ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – St. Augustine 450th Commemoration was one of the most recent recipients of the Addison Mizner Medal Award presented by the presentation, the Florida Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA).
The Mizner Medal, recognizes excellence in 21st-century classical architecture, design and related fields, honoring the achievements and contributions of those preserving and advancing the classical tradition.
In making the award which was in the patronage category, the ICAA said:
"The 450th Commemoration Team and the City of St. Augustine have undertaken many significant projects of preservation, architecture and urbanism to both celebrate this historical event and improve the qualities of this special city."
The work of the 450th Commemoration was noted for its ongoing effort to share with the nation and the world the important role the city played in the making of America.
Even though the award was announced last fall, the presentation to the city could not be scheduled until recently when the organization met in St. Augustine when Troy Beasley, President of the Florida Chapter of ICAA, presented the medal to St. Augustine Vice Mayor Roxanne Horvath and 450th Commemoration Director, Dana Ste. Claire.
