The Immokalee Pioneer Museum at Roberts Ranch is pleased to present “Heritage & Harvest–Original Works by Paul Arsenault.” The exhibition will be on display through March 23, 2019. Immokalee Pioneer Museum at Roberts Ranch is located at 1215 Roberts Avenue West, Immokalee, FL 34142.
Over the 44 years Paul Arsenault has devoted to painting in Collier, Lee, and Hendry Counties, he has recorded places and events that visually tell a story of the region’s history. The painted stories in this exhibition explore the heartland of Florida and its transition over the last 150 years from a raw wilderness inhabited by Seminole Indians and extremely hardy pioneers into a vibrant, multicultural agricultural core.
“Heritage & Harvest” depicts not only the bountiful natural resources that attracted and helped sustain the Calusa, Seminole and 19th-century settlers, but also the architectural expressions of that bounty, including early homes, stores, and schools, and waterfronts. The exhibit ranges geographically from the Everglades, inland to Immokalee, LaBelle, and the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation.
