Turtle Bay Exploration Park, in conjunction with Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, will host a free public presentation of the work of landscape photographer Rick Braveheart on Thursday, April 28 at 6:00 p.m. in the Turtle Bay Visitor Center Theater.
Braveheart’s presentation, “The Great American Landscape,” will feature his remarkable photographic images made during his residencies at Rocky Mountain, Badlands, and Petrified Forest National Parks, and his work with the Nature Conservancy and Museum of Northern Arizona. Braveheart will also include in his presentation photographic images taken during his April residency at Whiskeytown. A reception for the artist will follow with refreshments provided by The Friends of Whiskeytown.
Braveheart, a Native American (Iroquois/Tuscarora), visiting from Columbus, Ohio, explains, “As a Native American, I feel a deep connection to Shasta County because of the land’s history and cultural significance to the Wintu, Patwin, Nomlaki and other native people. I strive always in my landscape photography to honor those ancestors who have come before, by sharing with others the beauty of the land upon which those ancestors lived, cared for, and made possible for future generations.”
The Turtle Bay Visitor Center Theater is located at 840 Sundial Bridge Drive, in Redding. For more information, please call the Whiskeytown Visitor Center at 246-1225, or stop by 14412 Kennedy Memorial Drive, daily during the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
