Ken Scott Photo Exhibit at Dennos Museum — September 21—October 26
As part of our 25th Anniversary celebration last year, we collaborated with Leelanau photographer Ken Scott, who spent two years shooting our natural areas and other protected private lands. The result is a stunning collection of images that capture the essence of these beautiful places. Ken’s work will be the subject of an exhibition at the Dennos Museum in Traverse City.
The show will run from September 21 through October 26th. Many thanks to Sustainer Barbara Krause, who is helping to curate the show. “Each of the photographs selected for the exhibition invites us to look closely, engage our sense, savor the moment and share the photographer’s experience. Spend time with his pictures and you will see Leelanau’s beauty and variety with fresh eyes.” For museum hours and info: www.dennosmuseum.org.
“We are pleased to collaborate with the Leelanau Conservancy in the presentation of Ken Scott’s photographic documentation of these natural areas that provide inspiration for all who wander within them,” says Gene Jenneman, Dennos’ Executive Director.
