Springs Eternal: Florida's Fragile Fountains of Youth

River of Dreams by John Moran

Springs Eternal: Florida’s Fragile Fountains of Youth features John Moran's 30-year project to photograph the springs of Florida. The exhibit features many striking pairs of then-and-now pictures depicting the reality that our springs--once a source of awe--are now a source of deep concern, due to pollution, neglect and the groundwater demands of a thirsty state. 

In 2012, Moran joined forces with Dr. Lesley Gamble, creator of the Urban Aquifer, and designer Rick Kilby, author of Finding the Fountain of Youth, to initiate the Springs Eternal Project. Their collaboration has filled museum walls, wrapped city buses, and continues to develop creative forms of educational outreach inspiring Floridians to value, conserve and restore our precious waters.
