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. For more information, please call 305-230-1144.

Water, Water, Everywhere…fiber art show opens in Biscayne National Park Gallery
The bright, dimensional pieces feature a variety of subjects, from microscopic life to birds and other animals. Some depict aerial views, a moonrise over Biscayne Bay or the gentle falling of rain. Many of the artists take on significant environmental issues like water flow in the Everglades, red tides and oil spills on Florida’s west coast, climate change and invasive species.
