This exhibition considers America’s National Park Service as it enters its second century with a particular focus on South Florida’s four national park sites: Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks and Big Cypress National Preserve. Its purpose is to elevate awareness of our national parks with the hope of motivating action toward their continued protection. Experiential in approach, this exhibition presents natural and cultural objects, artwork and film to communicate the national park idea and experience. Curated by Jacqueline Crucet and designed by Miami-based design firm SimpleFly Creative, this exhibit is endorsed and supported by the National Park Service.
