For the last four years, the City of Asheville has read a proclamation declaring March 10th a day of remembrance to an artist who spent much of her life in Asheville, and we are planning several events that will be part of this week of celebration that takes place from March 8–14, 2020.

New this year is the Spirit of Zelda Award, which has been established to honor the free and creative vitality of Zelda Fitzgerald, who left a lasting mark on the city of Asheville and the world. Zelda’s dedication to the arts were witnessed through her painting, literature, and dance.
