The Museum of Florida History presents the special exhibit Guy LaBree: Painted Stories of the Seminoles.

His artwork portrays Seminole lifestyles, legends, and history, as well as nature scenes.
Also on display are objects from LaBree's studio, such as his easel and the palette he used throughout his entire career.
