Margaret Biggs

Two exhibits currently at the Pensacola Museum of Art highlight the beauty and diversity of landscapes on the Gulf Coast. Artists Margaret Biggs & Richard Sexton are both going to be speaking to the public about their work this week.


Margaret Biggs is a Pensacola native who returned to her beloved Gulf Coast after being away for more than 30 years.

Combining art with science can create an entire new discipline.  That’s the premise of Thomas Asmuth’s lecture this week called “Art as an Exo-Discipline”. Thomas Asmuth is an Assistant Professor in the Art Department at the University of West Florida specializing in digital and experimental media. His lecture titled “Art as an Exo-Discipline” is part of the Experience UWF Downtown lecture series and will be this Thursday afternoon, February 26 at 5:30 at the Pensacola Museum of Commerce.
