Calling all art enthusiasts! Do you enjoy painting, drawing, sculpting or are you just art-curious? Visit the Florida Museum for after-hours SciArt Meetups and create art inspired by Florida nature and culture!

Learn more about a collaboration by local artist Samm Wehman Epstein along with scientists Geena Hill and Sarah Steele Cabrera to create a coloring book on the endangered Miami blue butterfly.
