Culture Pop! Art 31: Sanctuary
31-Days of Experimentation and Collaboration Start Here
Held March 6, 2015, the A&H’s Maitland Art Center celebrated Art31: Sanctuary by unveiling six new installations during our evening Culture Pop! event. This exhibition opening was anything but ordinary.
Clyde Butcher: Nature’s Places of Spiritual Sanctuary
The backdrop for experimentation and collaboration during Art 31 was set by nationally known, award-winning photographer Clyde Butcher’s series Nature’s Places of Spiritual Sanctuary. Referred to as the Ansel Adams of the Everglades, the majestic beauty Clyde Butcher’s photographs have earned him recognition as the foremost landscape photographic artist in America today. Clyde Butcher: Nature’s Places of Spiritual Sanctuary is sponsored by Davis & Grim. For more on the Clyde Butcher exhibit, click here.
