Celebrate the Gila Wilderness on its 100th birthday! Obscura Gallery, Wild Earth Guardians, and the New Mexico Museum of Art present a lecture by artist Michael Berman. Celebrate all that’s exceptional about the Gila Wilderness, with a particular focus on the long legacy of storytelling through art and literature that the landscape has, and continues to inspire, and how those stories draw the lines between imagination, conservation, and policy. Through the magic of Berman’s photographs, and stories of place-based connection told by Berman, we’ll celebrate the wonders of this country’s first wilderness, and we’ll think boldly about what’s needed to protect this special place for the next 100 years.
