In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, this art exhibit showcases some of the plant species and communities found throughout the more than 400 national parks. From giant redwoods and aspen forests to endangered Virginia spiraea and water lilies, the national parks contain a diverse representation of the North American flora. Pat's painting proudly represents Biscayne National Park.
"I hope that you will enjoy the exhibition. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the artists and lenders who contributed to it, enabling me to share a part of America with the people of Niger. I am also grateful to Department of State Art in Embassies program curator Sarah Tanguy and her colleagues. Finally, I extend my sincere gratitude to the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Niamey for their assistance in skillfully placing and hanging the works of art."
Ambassador Eunice S. Reddick
