The Fire Island National Seashore is commemorating 50 years of The Wilderness Act with an exhibition by mixed media artist David Adams at the Wilderness Center on Fire Island, just west of Smith Point. From there, its just a mile and 1/4 to see the breach firsthand! The exhibition runs every Saturday/Sunday from 9/6 through 10/12.
Here’s an example of his work:
Here’s a link to a Facebook Page created for the Opening Reception, hosted by Gallery 125, on August 23rd. You can learn a lot about Mr. Adams’ work there.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Mr. Adam’s work will go towards helping Save The Great South Bay create a public map of the breach / Old Inlet / New Inlet that will geolocate all the photos, videos, and graphics on this special place on a time elapsed map, going back to its formation during Sandy to the present day. The map will be home to all the scientific studies on the area, all the amateur nature shots and videos of seal, osprey, stripers, piping plover, and of course the waters themselves.
If you wish to submit any picture or video for this public mapping project, please contact us via this form below, and thanks!
