A unique virtual panel discussion entitled “Understanding Lake Okeechobee: Crucible of Farmland, Ranchland and Wetland” is scheduled for this Tuesday, April 20, 2021 as part of ArtServe’s currently running “Changing Landscapes” environmental art exhibit.
Audobon Florida’s Everglades Science Coordinator Dr. Paul Gray will join Muck City Black Lives Matter Founder Robert Mitchell and Friends of the Everglades partner and Knight Challenge grant recipient ArtSail for the complimentary one-hour virtual event, which begins at noon (ET) on April 20 via Zoom or Facebook Live.
This virtual panel discussion is a continuation of the engaging conversations initiated during ARTSail’s first Lake Okeechobee expedition in early February 2021 with Dr. Gray and Mr. Mitchell.
It will explore the complexities of the Lake Okeechobee region, addressing some of the social and ecological issues impacting the local communities and natural ecosystem.
Activists will delve into whether visual art can facilitate more positive messaging and environmental outcomes.
