Cumberland Island: A Fragile Beauty
Cumberland Island: A Fragile Beauty, presented by the Cumberland Island Museum and the Fernbank Science Center, will feature photographs of Cumberland Island taken by photographer Diane Kirkland and illustrations and notes by Cumberland Island resident Carol Ruckdeschel. The exhibit will combine artwork celebrating the beauty of the island with informative panels that address issues affecting the health of the island’s ecology.
In her book The Natural History of Cumberland Island, Carol Ruckdeschel documented more than 50 years of her research as a resident of Cumberland Island. In the exhibition’s opening program, Ruckdeschel will discuss her life and work as a biologist, author, artist, and protector of Cumberland Island. A book signing opportunity will follow Ruckdeschel’s author-talk. This project is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
