If you didn’t have a chance to see the Owens Lake Project exhibit at G2 Gallery in Venice, California or again at the Interagency Visitors’ Center in Lone Pine last year, it’s now up for a third time!
The Eastern California Museum in Independence (very much worth a visit whenever you’re in the area) opened a year-long showing of the project last month, paired with some historical photos of the lake. The juxtaposition of old and new photos is quite striking (and kudos to Jon Klusmire at the museum for this perfect and fascinating approach). The images from the first phase of the project are now part of the museum’s permanent collection.
I’m delighted to see the project images on display again, because it’s so important to show people how much life exists on the lake (and on that note–look for a blog post in a couple of days about a VERY significant development on the lake).
