Our current exhibit explores Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ life and career – focusing on her seminal book The Everglades – River of Grass. A special section of this exhibit will highlight the work of artist Robert “Bob” Fink, whose illustrations appeared in the first and most of the subsequent editions of the book.  The exhibit also features the first ever display of an original block print by Mr. Fink – done as a study for the book’s cover. The print was donated to the Museum by Mr. Fink’s stepson at last year’s festival.

Damaged by a fire in the artist’s studio during the 1950’s, it was recently conserved, restored, and framed specially for inclusion in this exhibit. It is an exciting acquisition for our Museum and a must-see artifact for all of our visitors. It will remain on display through March 31.
