DEER HUMANS

Zabar Lobby Gallery 

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.
