“Sites & Scenes: Collier County’s Historic Places"

August 3, 2017 - January 27, 2018

Collier County, with its sandy beaches and warm winter weather, is known mainly as a vacation destination. Yet, if one takes the time to truly explore our County, they will find a treasure trove of history. 19th century homes, railroad depot from the roaring 1920s, and an engineering marvel are just some of the sites and properties that have survived the passage of time and the inevitable allure of progress. While not every important site and structure has been preserved, this exhibition will highlight some of our County’s most important historical landmarks, and the stories behind them.

"A Heart for Alligators - a retrospective of the art of Jürg ‘George’ Furrer"

November 11, 2017 - December 30, 2017

“A Heart for Alligators - a retrospective of the art of Jürg ‘George’ Furrer” celebrates the works of Jürg ‘George’ Furrer, who passed away in 2014. A popular illustrator and syndicated cartoonist in his home country of Switzerland, George was a familiar face in Everglades City for many years, visiting on an annual basis and making many lifelong friendships. George brought his appreciation for the region’s unique flora and fauna home with him, incorporating many of the things he experienced in Everglades City into his art. In 1994, he published a book of cartoons with Everglades themes: “Ein Herz für Alligatoren” (“A Heart for Alligators”) from which this exhibit takes its name. Included in this retrospective is a selection of original prints as well as copies of his books and other objects emblazoned with his distinctive alligator images.

Due to damages from Hurricane Irma, this exhibit has been relocated to Collier Museum at Government Center.
