NATURAL ONES

Bill Belleville and Jim Draper have turned blending ardent environmentalism and creative endeavors into an art form. A longtime friend of (and contributor to) Folio Weekly, Belleville (pictured) is an award-winning environmental writer, documentary filmmaker and lecturer. Jacksonville artist Draper is celebrated for creating large-scale paintings that are ruminations on the awe-inspiring and, at times, endangered flora and fauna of Florida. The pair are featured in the presentation “Celebrating the Wild Side of Florida: Portals into Nature, Culture, and Sense of Place,” which takes a look at Florida’s singular natural landscapes and systems, and examines how they’ve influenced writers and artists of The Sunshine State.
