Mitchell, the Holcombe T. Green Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture at the Yale University Art Gallery</strong> of his exhibit <em><strong>Yosemite: Exploring the Incomparable Valley</strong></em><strong>.</strong> Commemorating the 150th anniversary of <strong>Yale&rsquo;s Peabody Museum of Natural History</strong> and the 100th anniversary of the creation of<strong> America&rsquo;s National Park Service</strong>, <strong><em>Yosemite: Exploring the Incomparable Valley</em></strong> considers one of the country&rsquo;s most celebrated natural landmarks through the fields of both art and science.</p> <p>Beginning in 1855, artists, scientists, and scenic tourists alike traveled to the Yosemite Valley in California&rsquo;s Sierra Nevada Mountains to experience its majestic landscape in person. President Abraham Lincoln extended the first protection to the region in 1864, preserving the valley, with its sheer granite cliffs and soaring waterfalls, as well as the neighboring Mariposa Grove of ancient sequoias. Taking as its starting point Albert Bierstadt&rsquo;s large-scale <strong><em>Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point Trail</em></strong> (ca. 1873), a cornerstone of the collection of the<strong> Yale University Art Gallery</strong>, the exhibition shows how Americans found inspiration in the western landscape and also sought to understand its marvels&mdash;through paintings, prints, and photographs as well as the botanical and geological specimens that early scientists brought back from their expeditions. The exhibition was made possible by the Art Gallery Exhibition and Publication Fund and the Friends of American Arts at Yale Exhibition Fund.</p> <p><em><strong>Yosemite: Exploring the Incomparable Valle</strong></em>y runs October 7, 2016&ndash;December 31, 2016</p> <p>&nbsp;Episode 21 features musical clips by Ryder McNair from the 2015 film <em><strong>Yosemite</strong></em>, as well as songs from the bands <strong>The National Parks</strong> and<strong> Yosemite</strong>. Join us on the 26th to give thanks for one of America's greatest collective assets, our National Parks System.</p> <p><br /> Find our more by visiting: <br /> <a href="http://artgallery.yale.edu/&hellip;/yosemite-exploring-incomparabl&hellip;">http://artgallery.yale.edu/&hellip;/yosemite-exploring-incomparabl&hellip;</a><br /> <a href="https://www.nps.gov/yose/index.htm">https://www.nps.gov/yose/index.htm</a><br /> <a href="https://www.nps.gov/featurecont&hellip;/yose/anniversary/index.html">https://www.nps.gov/featurecont&hellip;/yose/anniversary/index.html</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://archives.wpkn.org/http://archives.wpkn.org/bookmarks/listen/165926 Sat, 26 Nov 2016 11:00:00 GMT
