Hickory Museum of Art: An Evening with Joel Sartore

  • Hickory Museum of Art 243 3rd Avenue Northeast Hickory, NC, 28601 United States (map)

Catawba Valley Camera Club and Hickory Museum of Art present "An Evening with Joel Sartore" in conjunction with the exhibition ENDANGERED: Joel Sartore Retrospective on view September 16, 2017 - February 25, 2018 in the Museum's Coe Gallery. 

Joel Sartore is a photographer, speaker, author, teacher, conservationist, National Geographic Fellow, and a regular contributor to National Geographic Magazine. His hallmarks are a sense of humor and a Midwestern work ethic Joel specializes in documenting endangered species and landscapes in order to show a world worth saving. He is the founder of The Photo Ark, a multi-year documentary project to save species and habitat.

In his words, "It is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. When we save species, we're actually saving ourselves."
