Terry Evans, Platte River, Nebraska, 1990

From Here to the Horizon: Photographs in Honor of Barry Lopez.

In recognition of Barry’s lasting inspiration, fifty leading American photographers have generously donated a collection of over 90 prints in his honor. Exploring the vernacular landforms of our nation, the exhibition traces how the landscape has informed our history, our identity, and our hopes for the future. Organized in collaboration with the Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the exhibition opens on January 27, 2023 and is available to travel to four additional venues through 2025.
