The exhibits, they are a-changin’

Posted by: Rebecca Durkin

The Burke's powerful show of contemporary indigenous photography, Our People, Our Land, Our Images, closed yesterday.

But the exhibit space won’t stay empty for long. Up next is a gorgeous wildlife photography show, Yellowstone to Yukon: Freedom to Roam, opening June 16. Photographer Florian Schulz spent 10 years following the trail of the grizzly through the Rocky Mountains. His images of the wildlife, the landscape, and the people of the region drive home a message of conservation for one of the world’s major mountain ecosystems.

Burke Blog will get you behind-the-scenes as we install Y2Y and prepare for opening day activities. Some of the 40 photos from the show are framed and hanging out in the exhibit workshop until they are ready to be installed. The exhibits crew is also working on panels and labels right now. More images coming soon!
