500 Artists

Flor500 celebrates the history of Florida through its distribution, acknowledgment, and production of culturally relevant information, the inclusion of artists from across the state allowing an opportunity for an involved sense of concurrent knowledge sharing. As the participating artists use their chosen wildflower muse as inspiration for an original work they continue the dissemination of knowledge offered to them by the botanists who selected their wildflower. This also speaks to inherent issues in historical documentation, the representation and dispersal of communal and individual truths often being ambiguous in specific meaning and intent.
