AIRIE Nest Gallery at Everglades National Park’s Visitor Center

Artists in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE) Nest Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in the heart of North America’s only subtropical wilderness. Since 2001, it has hosted more than 100 artists, writers, choreographers and musicians who spend a month in a live-work space in the Pine Island section of the 1.5 million-acre park, communing with its wildlife and creating original works for display in the gallery. Unconventional programming like immersive dance, musical performances, and bicycle theater excursions take place throughout the year with multidisciplinary artists who are eager to express the importance of conservation. It’s worth the drive to nearby Homestead.
