Transformative Experiences in the Everglades

MIAMI BOOK FAIR 2018 Room 7128, Building 7, 1st floor FREE PARKING 2ND-9TH FLOORS

Artists Deborah Mitchell, Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas present their art books focused on the tragically imperiled Everglades at the Miami Book Fair 2018. Artists in Residence in Everglades, (AIRIE) Executive Director Deborah Mitchell and 2014 Fellows Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas will discuss their challenging projects referencing the cultural history of this fragile ecosystem. Their strategic goal is to inspire the public to reconsider the environment while also illuminating the region’s collective heritage through art, history and science. The presentation will include stunning images from their publications and video poems created by LeBlanc and Dugas during the AIRIE and Deering Estate in residencies. The discussion will be followed by a Q & A session and book signing.
