New Exhibit | MY REEL

Now – July 21, 2018

View the world through the lens of local photographers, who specialize in various genres from modeling to nature, and enjoy selected photographs from the Museum’s extensive archives. “My Reel” includes “Share My Reel,” a collaboration exhibit that invited local artists from South Florida to submit their work before a juried committee. The committee included well-known local professional photographers, Michiko Kurisu, Marie Vickles and David I. Muir, who evaluated more than 180 submissions. Curated by Khaulah Naima Nuruddin, “My Reel” is an original show with a decidedly South Florida perspective.
