Jack Dykinga’s Colorful Grand Canyon National Park
In 2019, the Grand Canyon celebrates 100 years since its designation as a national park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Grand Canyon welcomes approximately six million visitors each year.
Etherton Gallery in Tucson celebrates the 100th anniversary of Grand Canyon National Park with an exhibition of stunning contemporary images by Pulitzer Prize winning photographer and environmental activist, Jack Dykinga, and 19th century and vintage photographs by William H. Bell, Ansel Adams, Mark Klett, and others, that capture the awe-inspiring grandeur of one of the great wonders of the world.
Owner Terry Etherton said: I am especially pleased to help commemorate this important milestone and help bring attention to the Grand Canyon National Park’s “unique natural, cultural and historic resources,” with the photographs of Jack Dykinga. Jack Dykinga has built a career on using photography to advocate for the protection and conservation of wild spaces all over the world.
After 100 years, whether its hiking a corridor trail, taking a stroll on the rim or enjoying the landscape from an overlook, the Grand Canyon continues to provide a space for all visitors to connect with the outdoors.
