Cost: Free and open to the public



The Pre[serve] Art Exhibition is a student and alumni juried exhibition featuring works inspired by Sawmill Slough Preserve, a 382-acre nature preserve located on the UNF campus. The works are displayed in an on-campus exhibition as a way to highlight the importance of conservation. The exhibition runs from March 26 through April 24.


This event is organized by the Environmental Center and Department of Art and Design, with support from the Cummer Family Foundation and Lufrano Intercultural Gallery.


The Sawmill Slough Preserve is a 382-acre protected area located on the UNF campus. The Preserve's natural beauty and rich biodiversity allures both biologists and artists alike. In May 2006, President John A. Delaney designated the pristine area of campus as a nature preserve, protecting it for future generations of Ospreys to enjoy!
