Flight: Aloft in the Everglades

January 28 – March 4 , 2015

Flight is an exhibition of new work created by artists who participated in the AIRIE residency at Everglades National Park. The artists in the exhibition each spent a month living and working in the park, immersed in the ecological and cultural concerns of the River of Grass. Their works explore many facets of our cultural experience of nature in this World Heritage Site. In Flight, the Everglades are considered through aerial views of suburban encroachment, birds taking wing, the ethereal nature of wind, and even the stark contrast of nuclear missiles housed deep in the wilderness.  This exhibition is curated by Deborah Mitchell.

 Every great work of art has two faces, one toward its own time and one toward the future, toward eternity.
