Third Thursday Lectures • The Everglades Art of Bob Fink

May 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
Bob Fink Illustration

A lifelong professional artist and illustrator, Robert “Bob” Fink’s work was first published at the tender age of 14. Best known for the stark, black and white block prints, he created to illustrate Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ environmental classic, “Everglades – River of Grass,” Fink’s career ran the gamut from architectural renderings for the Coral Gables Company to torrid covers for pulp fiction novels. This talk explores his relationship with Douglas through anecdotes about their travels on the Tamiami Trail (as shared by Fink’s daughter) as well as the story of the Museum’s serendipitous acquisition of one of the original prints created for Douglas’ groundbreaking book.

This is an in-person lecture, however, in consideration of COVID-19, seating is limited so that we are able to practice social distancing. Masks are required. Please RSVP below to secure your space.
