Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography show in Portland

See also

Many Portlanders have thrilled to the beauty of the Grand Canyon when visiting Arizona, usually to get a peek at the sun in the depths of winter. A photography exhibit featuring this beauty is now on display in the Discovery Museum of the Forestry Center in Washington Park, Portland, Oregon.

125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography is an exhibition created by the Grand Canyon Association and organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.

Taking truly breathtaking images of the canyon is often a challenge even for thrill seekers. For some, the rim offers the most magical views of this ageless chasm. For others, the best pictures are the ones that take the most effort. Going ever deeper into the rocky abyss, photographers seek out unexpected and amazing geologic formations, waterfalls, vegetation, and wildlife. A love affair with the canyon is intense and dangerous.

Visit the beauty of the Grand Canyon through January 26, 2014. This exhibit is included with museum admission.

The World Forestry Center brings exhibits of art, history and culture from around the world to its Special Exhibits Gallery. Admission is $9 per person; $8 for seniors; $6 for youth ages three through 18. The Center is located at 4033 SW Canyon Rd, Portland. Learn more at
