During the past decade, Andrew Moore made over a dozen trips to photograph along the 100th meridian, from North Dakota to the Texas panhandle. His images record vistas that can be both elegant and severe, as wells as the lives of the people that have made their home in this challenging landscape.

This exhibition will have a ticket fee. Free for members, youth ages 17 and younger, & college students with ID. Join today to see it free!
