FHSU's Sternberg Museum sponsors Lindholm lecture and Earth Day photographic competition

HAYS, KS -- In conjunction with the exhibition "Perspectives on the Land" now on display at Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History, the creator of the exhibition, Robert Lindholm, will give a public lecture titled "Tales Behind an Exhibit."

The lecture will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the Engle Educational Center at the museum and is free to museum members, $1 for non-members.

Lindholm will discuss how the photographs in the exhibition were made, both in the field and in the darkroom.

"Perspectives on the Land" is a photography exhibition in which he paired his landscape photography with environmental quotes from Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator.

Lindholm, a resident of Lindsborg, KS, spent more than 20 years practicing environmental law directed toward protecting natural resources. He has seen the lasting effects that unreasonable use of technology has had on our environment. He captures his feelings about the natural environment through the art of photography. His photographs, spanning more than twenty-five years, attempt to illustrate how the activities of man both respect and destroy the natural beauty of this planet.

Along with the exhibit and the lecture and in honor of Earth Day, the museum invites all Kansas 4-H members to participate in a photography competition.

Photographs submitted will be reviewed and up to 20 will be selected for display at the museum from April 20 through May 12. Entries must arrive no later than April 12.

Guidelines for submission of photographs for the Earth Day Extravaganza can be found on the museum's Web site at www.fhsu.edu/sternberg by following the link for museum sponsored events.
