The "La Florida: 500 Years in the Place of Flowers" traveling photography exhibit has found a permanent home in Tallahassee at the Florida Department of Transportation headquarters, 605 Suwannee St.
The exhibit, featuring 15 large-format photos of native Florida wildflowers by John Moran, is hanging near the first-floor lobby for all guests and employees to see. During its more than two-year tour of Florida, an estimated 20,000 people enjoyed the display and associated programming at such places as Bok Tower Gardens, Lake Wales; Leu Gardens, Orlando; and the Florida Museum of Natural History, Gainesville.
"We couldn't be happier to have this beautiful exhibit hang at the headquarters of FDOT, which has done so much to promote the planting and conservation of roadside wildflowers," said FWF Executive Director Lisa Roberts.
The exhibit was sponsored by the State Wildflower license plate. Bring it to your home, office or school – order a poster today!
