Summer Portrait Series - 6-6-24

Step into a summer of art and inspiration at Gulf Coast Village

Storyteller and actress Nan Colton will present “Portrait Artist – Élisabeth Vigée-LeBrun” at Gulf Coast Village, Cape Coral’s only life plan community, on Thursday, June 6.

As part of its Remarkable Women in History summer series, Gulf Coast Village invites current and prospective residents to enjoy the talents of Colton as she brings to life the story of Élisabeth Vigée-LeBrun, the celebrated 18th-century portrait artist known for her vibrant portrayals and intriguing life journey. Vigée-LeBrun served as a painter for Marie Antoinette until forced into exile by the French Revolution.

The event will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Gulf Coast Village’s auditorium, located at 1333 Santa Barbara Blvd. Following the presentation, group tours to view Gulf Coast Village’s model apartments and campus will be offered at 3 p.m.
