Join artists and visitors for a procession and panel discussion associated with the exhibitions Linda Hall: Beyond Gone and Alexa Kleinbard: Twilight in the Garden on display at the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum. At 10:30am on Saturday February 15, 2020, there will be a procession throughout the galleries of the Museum celebrating nature’s beauty and fragility. Participants are encouraged to wear masks and costumes related to wildlife that is special to you and/or endangered or extinct. Musicians Patrick McKinney and Paul Harvey will provide percussion.
The procession will conclude in the Bates Community Room, where the group can join the audience for a panel discussion with experts on native plants and animals. The discussion will cover how to take out invasive species and plant natives to attract the biodiversity that is so rich in North Florida. Panelists include Eleanor Dietrich, the former head of the Florida Wildflower Foundation’s Florida Department of Transportation liaison, who placed one of the state’s first wildflower resolutions in Leon County and aided FDOT in rewriting official policy and procedures.
