St. Croix' piece is near to my heart as it references the beauty of Florida's Everglades but also the destruction rained down upon this natural wonder by development encroaching from all sides. Florida needs another strip mall!
St. Croix is originally from Boston and holds a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA in sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art (Michigan). His work has been shown all around the world and is held in numerous collections. You can read more about him at blanedestcroix.com.
