Never No More: Storter’s Southwest Florida

From: 
Wednesday, October 2, 2013
Until: 
Sunday, January 5, 2014

The Mennello Museum is the first venue to showcase the new traveling exhibition based on the memoirs of Rob Storter (1894-1987), which were published in 2000 as the book “Crackers in the Glade.” Storter came from a family of early settlers in the village of Everglade. He was a self-taught artist and sketched pictures of his rural lifestyle and environment, and annotated them with stories, often bemoaning the wilderness that was being lost to development. Organized by Collier County Museums and the Friends of the Museum of the Everglades. Pictured above: "The Old Mackerel Fleet" by Rob Storter.
