When & Where
The Porter Fleming Foundation was created in 1963 by Barry Fleming to honor his father, painter and writer Porter Fleming. The Trustees of the Academy of Richmond County work on behalf of the Porter Fleming Foundation administering grants and fellowships to organizations and individuals who demonstrate excellence in the fields of education, literature, art, science, history, music and culture. In 2005 the Foundation received a bequest from Shirley Fleming’s estate. Ms. Fleming, an artist like her father and grandfather, was a highly regarded music critic in New York City until her death in 2005. During her career in New York she maintained a home and a passion for Augusta, GA.
In 2005, the Trustees had a vision of creating a festival that would culturally enrich the residents and visitors of Augusta, GA. There began the planning for the first Westobou Festival. These visionaries first came up with a name, Westobou. The Westobou River was the former name of the Savannah River derived from the Westo Indians who migrated to Augusta, GA in the 1660’s. The Savanna Indians defeated the Westo Indians in 1680, and the river that now runs through downtown Augusta remains named after the Savanna Indians, the Savannah River.
