One more, as was relayed to me by Tom Croce from his Facebook:
January 17 through March 23, 2012 – Schumacher Gallery, Capital University (Columbus, OH) Rare: Joel Sartore’s Portraits of America’s Endangered SpeciesNational Geographic contributing photographer Joel Sartore has spent two decades on a mission to document North American plants and animals facing extinction. Intimate color portraits capture the essence of each species with subjects ranging from condors to crocodiles, wolverines to woodpeckers, snails to sea turtles. The exhibition, curated by Smith Kramer Fine Arts, Kansas City, also celebrates the comeback of endangered species such as the American alligator, the gray wolf and the iconic bald eagle.
