Come to the opening of the Florida Museum's newest gallery exhibition:

La Florida: 500 Years in the Place of Flowers

In 1513, when Juan Ponce de Leon arrived in this land and named it La Florida, it was ablaze with a rainbow of spring blossoms. This exhibit showcases stunning photography to commemorate 500 years of Florida's unique wildflowers, which continue to play an important part in the state’s natural history and culture. Featured are 15 large-format photographs by Gainesville nature photographer John Moran, who roamed the state to capture the beauty and mystique of Florida's original Garden of Eden.
