America the Beautiful: Photographs by Clyde Butcher

July 19, 2019 - October 13, 2019

50 years in the making, Clyde Butcher’s exhibit is a collective of nature’s landscapes from our bountiful national parks. Included in this exhibit are other areas of beauty to be displayed and enjoyed by all. Butcher has captured the very essence of the magic that our most treasured landscapes have to offer and the images serve as ambassadors that speak on behalf of these majestic locations themselves.

Released to coincide with the observance of the National Park Service’s Centennial, this collection of some of Butcher’s best images helps us to celebrate our national heritage, our national parks, and the places that really do tell the story of who we are and who we will continue to be in perpetuity. This exhibition will also feature gorgeous imagery of Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park, not previously exhibited with this traveling show.    

Clyde Butcher has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community, and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art. His photography transcends political boundaries, challenging us to work together to protect natural places across the globe.
