The exhibit features jury-selected images that capture the beauty of America’s wildest natural spaces. The exhibit celebrates the Wilderness Act, an integral element of the U.S.A’s conservation efforts. Since its adoption in 1964, it has protected more than 109 million acres of American wilderness. The exhibit was selected from more than 5,000 submissions from throughout the U.S.A.
