Pioneering the Past: The Story of the Brickell Family – South Florida’s Forgotten Founders

August 31 – November 27, 2021

Museum of the Everglades

Guest curator Cesar Becerra created this traveling tribute to William and Mary Brickell: early pioneer settlers in South Florida whose story has been largely diminished or even ignored in favor of a more romantic narrative. The exhibit explores the marginalization of the couple’s role as the co-founders of Miami as well as their contributions to the birth and growth of commerce in South Florida as a whole.
