Visitors enjoy "Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography" Closing January 5, 2013

GCA 26-4 JDykinga Snowy Ponderosa_WebCompressIf you have a spare hour, are entertaining visitors from out-of-town or need a change of pace, come to the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library to enjoy "Lasting Light:  125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography" in its final weeks at the museum.  If visitor comments are any indication, you will be glad you did!

We love reading visitors' remarks to see how folks touring the galleries respond to our exhibitions.  In "Lasting Light:  125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography" many visitors have been moved by the photographers' work on display.  Here is one comment: "As a photographer I came to be inspired and I was -- over and over!"  Other visitors left ready to pack their bags:  "How inspiring--I visited [the Grand Canyon] many years ago but plan to return.  Thank you."  Some even experienced the canyon without even leaving the state:  "Thoroughly enjoyed this exhibit--I've wanted to visit the Canyon but as yet have not -- this exhibit had me almost standing within it.  Thanks to all the patient and talented photographers who contributed...."  More visitors summed up their feelings in just a few words:  "Amazing Wonders" or "Impressive! Beautiful! And the colors!" 

Please come and let us know your impression of the varied photographs in the exhibition. We would be thrilled to hear from you in the comments section below or in the gallery.
