"Rewild Florida" solo exhibition Sept. 28-Dec. 31, 2024 at Flamingo Gardens

Flamingo Gardens presents:  Rewild FloridaThe Art of Stephanie McMillan, an exhibit of drawings of South Florida plants and wildlife by Fort Lauderdale artist Stephanie McMillan. Her art portrays iconic species such as the Florida panther, manatee, and alligator, as well as less widely appreciated species like the spiny orb weaver, larraflower, and the ring-neck snake.

For McMillan, creating art has become a spiritual practice that opens possibilities for connecting with plants, wildlife, and the human community. The underlying message of this collection is: “Let’s get to know the wild beings around us and participate in the web of life with love and respect for all.”

Stephanie McMillan’s colorful paintings and drawings are inspired by her love for the plants and wildlife of South Florida, where she is a third-generation resident. Her playful style, infused with humor, evolved from 25 years as an award-winning and widely published cartoonist and illustrator.

Throughout each week of the exhibition, visitors to Flamingo Gardens will have the opportunity to find various prints from the collection hidden throughout the gardens, theirs to keep and enjoy.
