At the start of 2023, HDM will unveil our new limited-time featured exhibit, Dive Into Art: Edge of the Sea. This community art exhibit will showcase work from the Art Guild of the Purple Isles and students from eleven elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the Florida Keys, Participants will create art to celebrate the plants and animals that thrive where land meets the sea all while learning about mangroves, tidal zones, and the unique wildlife to be found in these habitats.

As we approach the season of giving, we are calling on the generosity of our community to support development of the new exhibit. By becoming a sponsor, you will give students the ability to participate, buy art supplies for students and teachers as well as support outreach presentations in schools and the community. Every dollar helps to complete the habitat portrait which will be proudly displayed in the Dive Into Art: Edge of the Sea exhibit.
