Seaside’s Academic Village

Seaside's Academic Village

After the installation of the cottages, the boardwalks, steps (stadium seating for the Lyceum lawn) fencing and other work took place. Recently, sculptor Mark Dickson from Tallahassee, gave the Seaside Institute “Messenger,” a 10-foot high, 600 lb. sculpture, to keep on display in the Village for several years. A very successful fundraiser was held to outfit the space with tables and chairs. In the last few months, the Village has been used by student and faculty from a half-dozen universities, writers, painters, and photographers for workshops and hosted several conferences. We consider this project a huge success already.
