Hidden in the Water Forest
A temporary mural was created which was used as a map to describe native and non native flora. Leaf forms were described and used to create the fauna (animals) that live in the mangrove ecosystem. These animals were mounted to a wall at the Artlab33 Art Space gallery. By Onajide Shabaka
HIDDEN IN THE WATER FOREST WAS AN AMAZING DISCOVERY OF MANY OF THE FISH THAT LIVE WITHIN OUR MANGROVE SYSTEM IN SOUTH FLORIDA.

Truman realizes that the color of the paint matches his t-shirt. A good way to disguise a stain
Julia coloring her fish in pink. Very focused
Tara gives us a big smile

We would like to give special thanks to Sam Van Leer from Urban Paradise Guild for the donation of leaves and branches.
And of course World Resource Cafe for their succulent food!
