Workshops - Art from Recycled Materials: Saturdays, 1:30 – 3:30pm, October 28, November 18, December 9, January 20
(Geared towards children)

Villasmil and Martinez are artists, environmental activists and educators. For the past two years, they have researched the Everglades through our library system and documented their findings through art. The result - a fairytale world of line drawings, sculptural installations and graphic-novel style storytelling that parallels Marjorie Stoneman Douglas’ River of Grass and recounts the natural, social, and cultural history of the Everglades. Their goal is to investigate the relationship between art, society and nature, and to create awareness of the need to protect our natural resources.
