Legendary Landscapes


through December 2, 2017

View breathtaking images of High Desert landscapes and learn about the fascinating stories behind how these places got their names in this community-curated exhibition.

We selected entries by curatorial review based on several factors including the quality of the photography and the story behind the given name. Together, the selections reflect the diversity of landscapes in the High Desert region.

It is our hope that Legendary Landscapes will inspire visitors to explore more of the region and delve deeper into its natural and cultural history.

Legendary Landscapes is open through December 2, 2017.

With support from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation
