INVASIVE

Collaborative Exhibition in Partnership With the Foundation for Lee County Schools
lion fishINVASIVE is a collaborative exhibition at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center (SBDAC) created in partnership with the Foundation for Lee County Schools. The exhibition will be made up of artwork depicting invasive exotic plant and animal species created by Lee County School students. This exhibition asks students to unite art and design with science by research the biology and ecology of the invasive species and our local southwest Florida ecology in order to make their artistic renderings. The exhibition will be presented at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center from May 5-24, 2017.
