PINELLAS PARK - Ever since she was able to hold a crayon, Tara Radosevich has fostered a love of the arts.

She also has always been drawn to animals - especially horses - and images of the American West, such as cowboys and Native Americans, despite growing up in St. Petersburg, just miles from the beach.

“I wanted a farm,” she said, recalling one early picture she drew for her father when she was around 5 years old.

Though they lived in an apartment building, she drew a farm, complete with llamas.

ST. PETERSBURG - Happy Hour with the Historian - the St. Petersburg Museum of History’s lecture series that features an evening of wine, words and wisdom - will continue the 2016-17 series with a presentation by award-winning journalist Craig Pittman on Thursday, March 9, at the St. Petersburg Museum of History, 335 Second Ave. NE, St. Petersburg.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the lecture will begin at 7 p.m.

To outsiders, Florida seems baffling. It’s a state where voters went for Barack Obama twice, yet elected a Tea Party candidate as governor. Touted as a carefree paradise, the state is also known for its perils - alligators, sinkholes, pythons, hurricanes and sharks, to name a few.

ST. PETERSBURG - “The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip” runs Thursday, Feb. 9, through Sunday, June 4 in the Hazel Hough Wing at the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, 255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg.

The exhibit promises to take visitors on a virtual trip across America through the lens of many of the country’s most talented photographers.

The American road has been a muse for writers, musicians, film directors, painters and photographers. Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” (1957) and John Steinbeck’s “Travels with Charley” (1962) are classics in American literature. “Easy Rider” (1969), starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper, featured the motorcycle as a protagonist and as a symbol of rebellion. “Thelma and Louise” (1991), with Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, the first feminist road movie, attracted a large audience.

As portrayed in the popular film “Defiance,” the three brothers - Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski - took refuge from the Nazis in the forests surrounding Novogrudok, Belarus. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women, and children. Through the brothers' leadership, the group survived starvation, harsh winters and the threat of the Nazis and their collaborators.
