Approximately 100 Key Deer were hurt or killed by cars last year, and are further threatened by loss of habitat, hurricanes, Screwworm disease, and weakening of the Endangered Species Act. Watson has taken their plight to heart, with a series of work made from reclaimed materials depicting the Keys’ native deer and wildscapes.
Watson will be joined by a representative from the National Key Deer Refuge/Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges to lead a talk about the deer’s struggles and her use of reclaimed materials in this latest series of work.
20% of sales from Deer Humans, will be donated to the Florida Keys Wildlife Society.
