In South Florida, few are more legendary than Guy Harvey. Even if his name does not sound familiar, you have no doubt seen Harvey's realistic ocean scenes on the backs of long-sleeved shirts. No one steers clear of Harvey, Palm Beach rich or Lake Worth poor; it doesn't matter -- everyone rocks these classic shirts. While Guy's signature style has made a splash in clothing, it's still the art that truly matters and carries a message.
While meeting the famed Harvey makes South Floridians and fishing freaks everywhere skip a beat, it's the message he is spreading that makes this upcoming event exciting. The night will open with a screening of Whale Sharks of the Yucatan: A Guy Harvey Expedition. The documentary puts the viewer right next to Harvey during his journey through an annual shark feeding in Isla Mujeres. All of the beautiful views with none of the actual shark interaction? That's a big catch for a fisherman. Also available for viewing will be Harvey's exhibition "Celebration of the Sea: A Guy Harvey Exhibit." Oh, and then the guy himself will come out for a meet-and-greet and Q&A session to satiate the eager oceangoers in attendance. Is there such a thing as too much Guy Harvey? No, but it doesn't hurt to push the limits.
The screening of Whale Sharks of the Yucatan: A Guy Harvey Expedition and the meet and greet are Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Miramar Cultural Center, located at 2400 Civic Center Place in Miramar. Admission is $5. Call 954-602-4536, or visit miramarculturalcenter.org.
