Touch The Sky: Prairie Photographs by Jim Brandenburg

April 1, 2013 – May 26, 2013

World-renowned photographer and contemporary landscape artist Jim Brandenburg pays tribute to the awe-inspiring landscapes and breath-taking vistas of the American tallgrass prairie. Brandenburg manages to capture the panoramic majesty of herds of bison, raging wildfires and lightening storms, while still managing to endear his subject by noting small details, such as grasshoppers and dragonflies.

This exhibit is organized by the Bell Museum of Natural History, University of Minnesota.
