The Lake: A Documentary Exploring the Land and People of Lake Apopka

This latest collaboration between Crealdé School of Art and the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation offers a contemporary and historic window into the culture and landscape of Central Florida’s Lake Apopka. Two Crealdé documentary photography instructors guided a master class of students in creating photographs and oral histories that join the paintings of ten of Florida’s top landscape painters to explore the relationship between Lake Apopka and the diverse people who call the shores of Florida’s third largest lake their home and place of work. Through visual art and researched history, this comprehensive project and exhibition traces Lake Apopka from the early citrus and tourism industry through the revolutionary mid-century muck farming industry, which included the partial draining of the lake and led to massive environmental destruction and public health issues, to the current efforts of restoration, responsible land and water management, and the emerging eco-tourism industry.

Friday, November 3 - Crealdé Photography Guild presents The Photographers: Participating photographers tell stories and share their experiences.
7 to 9pm at Alice & William Jenkins Gallery, Crealdé School of Art
