A slideshow lecture by Tony Foster titled “Into the Wild―Painting Sacred Places” will take place on Sunday, June 16 at 2 p.m. The artist will talk about sacred places in this region and hiking into them. The lecture is open to the public and is included with Museum admission.
Museum Director Dr. Robert Breunig said, “Foster’s works of art are visual poems that give form to the feelings and thoughts that the beauty of the Colorado Plateau inspire. They clearly illustrate the geographical and geological diversity that marks a journey in any direction across the Plateau Province, as John Wesley Powell called it. Tony Foster’s paintings of sacred sites on the Colorado Plateau speak to the richness of the human experience here, the beauty and complexity of the natural world, and the ways in which humanity has given meaning to those places.”
