Samuels Public Library presents – The National Geographic Photo Ark
Tuesday, October 12th, 2021
6:00pm – 7:30p
Are you an animal lover? Do you appreciate incredible photographs? Please join Mary Ladrick, Director of Education, Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV), for a presentation about the National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.
The Photo Ark is an ambitious project committed to documenting every species living in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries—inspiring people not just to care, but also to help protect these animals for future generations.
Beginning September 25, The Museum will be hosting an inspiring traveling exhibition that showcases this important project and features the work of National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore. Sartore estimates the completed National Geographic Photo Ark will include portraits of over 15,000 species representing several animal classes, including birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. These iconic photo portraits have captured the imaginations of people around the world and have even been projected on the Empire State Building and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
You will not want to miss this presentation at Samuels Public Library and do take time to visit the MSV from September 25, 2021, through February 13, 2022, to view more than 40 of Sartore’s most compelling images. This is our opportunity to come face to face with animals from the National Geographic Photo Ark. Please register for this presentation.
