Orange juice. South Beach. Palm trees. The Everglades. All of these things epitomize Florida to locals and tourists. For many, Clyde Butcher’s iconic images of the Everglades perfectly capture the wild and untamed beauty and essence that is Florida. Since Clyde picked up a camera and started taking awe-inspiring images of the Florida Everglades more than 50 years ago, he has become as legendary as his stunning images: He is the Ansel Adams of Florida.
On Sept. 11, 2014, public relations firm Durée & Company’s client Coral Springs Museum of Art honors the man, the myth, the legend, with “Butcher & Blues,” an evening of art, live music, food from local hotspots like Taste Buds of India, Buca di Beppo and Blue Moon Seafood and Blues, and refreshing libations from Funky Buddha Brewery, Bombay Sapphire, and more. Proceeds will benefit the Coral Springs Museum of Art. “Butcher & Blues” runs in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibit of Clyde’s latest work “Preserving Eden,” which will be on display Sept. 6 – Nov. 22.
Got plans on Sept. 11? Well, never fear, as Clyde will also be doing two book signings at the Museum on Friday, Sept. 12 from 2–4 p.m. and 5:30–7:30 p.m.
