"FloodZones" Opens at HistoryMiami

Photographer Anastasia Samoylova's photographic series, "FloodZone," responds to the environmental changes taking place in South Florida's coastal cities.

On Thursday, the museum will host the exhibition's grand opening, where you'll have the chance to meet Samoylova and discuss her work. 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, October 14, at HistoryMiami, 101 W. Flagler St., Miami; 305-375-1492; Admission is free with RSVP.
