Description
This exhibit will be shown in conjunction with the 11th Biennial Jack London Society Symposium held in Logan, Utah, and co-sponsored by the USU Department of English and the USU Libraries' Special Collections and Archives Division. The symposium is scheduled October 4-6, 2012, but this exhibit will be on display in the museum's Upstairs Gallery throughout the fall. Featuring majestic landscape photos by Ansel Adams and Brett Weston, the exhibit explores the rugged, historical, and dangerous qualities of the western world portrayed in Jack London's writing. Certain drawings and photographs in the exhibit will be on display in the museum for the first time, and they will help explore literary themes of naturalism, courage, modern American values, and man's precarious relationship to his natural environment.
