MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) - Another COCA Connection segment, where we are highlighting arts and culture in the community.

This week's edition spotlighted an art exhibit showcasing work by Aubrey Beardsley. Beardsley is famous for his black and white drawings that were concepts of the aesthetic mode of “decadence”.

This was a stylish iconography of subject matter and imagery that was widely available through the many publications of the popular press, magazines and printing houses commissioning his illustrations. 

Beardsley died at the age of 25 of ill health at the close of the Victorian era.

This exhibit will be on display from Friday, October 13 through Sunday, November 12 at FSU's Museum of Fine Arts.
