Join Senior Curator of Education and History, Zach Zacharias at the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art for a tour of the paintings of the Everglades throughout the Museum. The Everglades, the largest sub-tropical ecosystem in the United States, has a long and unique environmental history. Artists from the early 19th century have found the visual characteristics of the people and the land compelling subjects for artworks. The climatic conditions change frequently giving new dimensions of color, motion, and light to the landscape. The dramatic variables are a challenge to the painting attempting to capture a specific moment and the flora and fauna are often unique and fascinating.
