Visitors to Miami International Airport will be able to enjoy Pollinators, a newly installed art exhibition in the Concourse E pre-security area.

The watercolour and mixed media works in the exhibition focus on plants from South Florida and their animal and insect pollinators, said the airport operator.

Addressing these complex natural relationships, members of the Tropical Botanic Artists Collective illustrated birds, butterflies, moths, bees, wasps – even aquatic zooplankton – with the plants they pollinate. Artists featured in this exhibition are Margie Bauer, Kristi Bettendorf, Beverly Borland, Silvia Bota, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Daniel Duck, Pauline Goldsmith, Diana Heitzman, Leo Hernandez, Elsa Nadal, Donna Torres, and Jedda Wong.

The Tropical Botanic Artists Collective was established in Miami, Florida in 2006 to pursue the beauty of tropical plants through art. Its members come from all walks of life, each bringing a unique viewpoint to their work. The artists hope, they said, that MIA travellers ‘will take a moment to observe the wonders of minute detail in plants and bring these new powers of observation into everyday life’.
