The Art of Red Tide
Florida’s red tide blooms can have a huge impact on
communities, causing concerns about everything from a bloom’s impact on a local
economy to how it affects marine animals like manatees and sea turtles.
To help communicate information about red tides to the
public, students at the Ringling College of Art and Design have created new
artworks that are on display from Dec. 1 through Dec. 7 in Mote’s Immersion Cinema. They include
everything from a comic book to sculpture to movies and blogs.
Please visit the show today and vote for Best in Show.
Also showing at the top of every hour: “Red Tide Refrain,” a
hi-def red tide documentary by the Essential Image Source Foundation, produced
in conjunction with Solutions to Avoid Red Tide (START).
