The Legacy Institute for Nature and Culture (LINC) is celebrating the natural beauty of the Everglades through the work and words of leading Florida artists featured in the Greater Everglades Conservation Atlas.

Generously funded by RBC Blue Water Project and in partnership with National Geographic's Maps Division, the Greater Everglades Conservation Atlas uses an online map platform called a GeoStory to showcase ten artists and locations. Through stunning video storytelling, it transports us to places such as Big Cypress Swamp, the Lake Wales Ridge and Rookery Bay.

On exhibit at Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary from Jan. 7-Feb. 28 will be the Atlas' ten, original, place-based works of art by some of Florida’s most gifted visual artists: Clyde Butcher, Jerry Cutler, Megan Kissinger, Margaret Ross Tolbert, Charlotte Lykes Jorgensen, Christopher Still, Vevie Lykes Dimmitt, Carol McArdle, Elizabeth Smith, and Mollie Doctrow.

Additionally, visitors will be privy to the short film "The Light in the Everglades" by Joe Davenport of Manship Films.

There will be a celebratory reception on Jan. 23rd from 5:00-7:00 pm. Don’t miss this opportunity to tour the world-famous Corkscrew boardwalk (until 6:00 pm) and meet many of the Everglades Atlas Artists in person. Light appetizers and beverages will be included; donations are greatly appreciated.
