Mr. Nadel is the February Artist in Residence in the Everglades (AIRIE), and his project is a museum exhibition that documents the people and landscape of the greater Everglades watershed. Nadel has crisscrossed the Everglades to document how politics, culture, economy, and ecology have dynamically interacted, and often collided, to push the Everglades ecosystem to the edge of collapse.

Nadel explains, “The Artist in Residence in the Everglades program allowed me to document the natural splendor of the Everglades landscape, the beauty of its native species, and the invasive exotic animals and plants that threaten the ecosystem.”
