NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTO ARK: JOEL SARTORE
June 2 – September 2, 2018
Species are disappearing at an alarming rate, but together we can help.
The National Geographic Photo Ark, led by photographer Joel Sartore, is a multiyear effort to document every species living in wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.
With ingenuity and wit, National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore has captured portraits of more than 6,000 creatures in 40 countries to date. Many of the animals live in the world’s zoos and aquariums, institutions dedicated to preserving and caring for species of all kinds. This exhibition features many iconic images and allows visitors to follow Sartore around the world on this exciting and important project.
About the Photographer:
Joel Sartore is a photographer, speaker, author, teacher, conservationist, 24-year contributor to National Geographic magazine, as well as a National Geographic Fellow. He has traveled to every continent and specializes in documenting endangered species and landscapes. Simply put, he is on a mission to document endangered species in order to show a world worth saving. “Every year I see more habitat loss, more species consumed for food, medicine or simply decoration,” says Sartore. “The Photo Ark was born out of desperation to halt, or at least slow, the loss of global biodiversity.”

EXPRESSIONISM IN PRINT: THE EARLY WORKS OF RICHARD HAAS, 1957 – 1964
June 23 – October 21
Richard Haas’s expansive oeuvre is predominantly marked by trompe l’oeil murals and detailed renderings of New York City’s architecture. But before he began recording urban landscapes, Haas sought inspiration from German Expressionist printmakers and Abstract Expressionist painters.
Included in the exhibition are prints produced between 1957 and 1964—a seven-year period that, in many ways, encapsulates the artist’s graphic evolution. While attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, a city heavily settled by German immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries, Haas began studying German Expressionism. Informed by the emotive woodcuts of Emil Nolde, Max Beckmann, and Erich Heckel, Haas’s large-scale prints include abstract portraits of European artists and great thinkers.
