The Dante Fascell Visitor Center Gallery

Artists have always played a crucial role in increasing awareness and inspiring stewardship of national parks. Opened in 2002, the Dante Fascell Visitor Center gallery provides a space where contemporary artists, inspired by the beauty of Biscayne National Park and South Florida, can show their work. Past shows have included color and black and white photography, oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor paintings, drawings, fiber, ceramics, collage and sculpture. Shows typically include a "meet the artist" reception, made possible by sponsors. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, please call 305-230-1144.

The Recombinant: 50th Anniversary Exhibit

Works in a variety of media from 23 artists will be on display in Biscayne National Park in the Dante Fascell Visitor Center gallery from July 27 to October 7, 2018. The show is free and open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The show is titled Recombinant because it is a new combination of old elements.

Recombinant is part of the community artists program, an outlet for artists inspired by the beauty of Biscayne National Park. Since 1997 the gallery hosted over 60 shows featuring photography, paintings and drawings in a variety of media including fiber, clay, printmaking and sculpture. The program is made possible by the South Florida National Parks Trust, and the 2018 shows celebrating the park’s 50th anniversary year are made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through the Knight Arts Challenge, The Guerra Family Foundation, and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.
