Clyde Butcher: America the Beautiful
Clyde Butcher’s photographs reveal wild and natural places where few humans have ventured, with images capturing remarkable solitude and wonder. His large-scale dramatic images are a valued artistic expression of what we have, and what we might lose if we do not protect our environment. Butcher grew up in California and later relocated to Florida, finding peace and his life’s mission within the Everglades. Butcher is an ambassador to the arts and environment, a diplomat of the remaining wild places, and an emissary to the hearts and minds of Americans to protect our country’s natural places.

“This exhibition shows such a variety of Clyde Butcher’s stunning landscapes from all over the country. His perspectives are just incredible”, said Emily Kapes, Curator of Art.
