“A Peculiar Paradise” Opening Reception
11/08/2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Be the first to see our newest exhibition at the opening reception with special guest photographer Nathan Benn. While on assignment for National Geographic, Benn captured Florida in 1981, a moment in the state’s history made famous by Miami’s narcotics-related crime wave and influx of newcomers from the Caribbean. After nearly 40 years, Benn has revisited his Florida image archive and A Peculiar Paradise will feature over 100 selections, as well as artifacts related to his 20-year career at National Geographic.
Your ticket to opening night includes complimentary beverages and light bites.
Museum Members: FREE
