Lions & Tigers & Bears:  Through the Lens with National Geographic

Though they are extremely powerful, lions, tigers, and bears need not be feared as Dorothy and her friends famously did along the Yellow Brick Road. Rather, these majestic predators deserve our respect, care, and protection.

Featuring multi-year coverage from National Geographic photographers Michael “Nick” Nichols, Steve Winter, and Paul Nicklen, this exhibition attests to the wildness and beauty of lions and tigers and bears.

*Opening Saturday, February 3rd 2018
