Join us for a private talk with artist Jim Couper, Professor Emeritus of Art and founding Director of the Art Museum at FIU, now known as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum.

His paintings do not have people or even traces of people in them, just untouched nature in its purest form. According to Couper, "It's the experience of the wild landscape, not a picture of it that interests me.” The Florida Everglades are the artist's favorite place to paint; unfortunately, he has witnessed the Everglades decline over time.
