Wine, Painting & Art

Posted on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 1:35 am

Wine, Painting & Art (WPA) is part of the Young Performing Artists (YPAs), Inc. Royal Historical Enrichment & Art Program (RHEAP). RHEAP educates, supports and promotes the historic Community Of Royal’s rich history. Formed in 1865, Royal is one of Florida’s oldest African American Communities.
To further promote the uniqueness of the Community Of Royal, we named this program in honor of our nation’s WPA history. The WPA (Works Progress Administration) was the largest and most ambitious American New Deal agency, employing millions of people to carry out public works projects, including construction of public buildings and roads. One of Royal’s community schools was built using the community men employed by the WPA.
This event is held at a local winery in the historic Community of Royal on various days. We will coordinate with your group’s calendar and the Winery.
Reservations Required ($35 per person). Call 352-748-0260 or email youngartists@aol.com. Do not call the wineries; this is a YPAs, Inc. event, presented by Young Performing Artists (YPAs), Inc. We appreciate your support!
