Delta Grandeur Photography Exhibit

An image of windmills dotting a golden hillside is one of the featured photos on display at the UC Merced Library though November. A new photo exhibit that celebrates the beauty and diversity of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is on display in the UC Merced Library through late November.

The exhibit, “Delta Grandeur: The Bucolic Splendor of California’s Inland Estuary,” is located on the second floor of Kolligian Library in Room 280 and continues through Nov. 27.

Developed in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council, the exhibit explores the complex relationship humans and wildlife have forged with the delta through 36 vibrant photographs by Rich Turner, a fine arts, commercial and aerial photographer based in Stockton.

A reception will take place 4 to 5 p.m. Oct. 27 in KL 280. The exhibit is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor.
