The Art of Bob Fink – from the Coral Gables Company to Everglades: River of Grass.

The Art of Bob Fink: Illustrator of Everglades – River of Grass by Marjorie Stoneman Douglas

Our guest speaker is Thomas Lockyear, Museum Manager at the Museum of the Everglades in Collier County, on the subject of Bob Fink, the son of Denman Fink –- who illustrated much of the promotional material for the Coral Gables Company.

Bob worked there as a young man and met a copy-writer named Marjory Stoneman Douglas who was also in their employ. Many years later she would ask him to illustrate her book “Everglades: River of Grass.”

Bob Fink was also one of the founders of University of Miami’s famed Iron Arrow Honor Society.
Iron Arrow Honor Society
Fink was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Northeast. The family moved to Coral Gables, Florida, in the early 1920’s, where Denman Fink took part in the design of the community. Bob helped his father in the design of a national advertising campaign for the community, but the Depression hindered the advancement of this project. He became a student at University of Miami, where his father subsequently taught, and then moved to New York, where he studied at the Art Students League and then became a magazine and advertising illustrator.
Everyone is invited to this scheduled Zoom meeting. Please share the link with a friend.
