Nature Underwater Art Exhibit

October 4, 2013  6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park will host a free reception to the community in honor of the new exhibition, "Nature Underwater." Guests can meet world-traveling, awarding-wining local artists enlightening new perspectives toward underwater life. More than 70 pieces of sculpture, paintings, and photographs expose breath-taking ecological environments and capture rare encounters throughout the world’s ocean and beyond; fish, plants, and underwater seascapes are brought to life, and all work is offered for sale.

   In addition, special guest speaker Dr. Michael Heithaus with Florida International University will present his work on the behaviors and interactions of bull sharks in the Loxahatchee River and other estuarine systems.

   There will also be a raffle, including scuba lessons, boat rentals, educational classes, clothing, equipment, and other items to raise funds for the Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park, a community-based, non-profit organization. The Friends promotes the historical, educational, and ecological enhancement of Jonathan Dickinson State Park and is directly responsible for funding many park programs and improvements.

  • RSVPs are requested. Call the Kimbell Center at 561-745-5551 or libby.reinert@dep.state.fl.us.
