Members-Only Pancake Preview & Exhibition Opening
Saturday, May 14, 2022
9 a.m. – Noon
Center of the West members, please join us on Saturday, May 14, 9 a.m. – noon as we celebrate the opening of the special photography exhibition Thomas D. Mangelsen: A Life in the Wild. Please check in at the front desk, then enjoy a pancake brunch in the Center’s Kuyper Dining Pavilion, served from 9 – 11 a.m.
Members enjoy brunch and then move to the John Bunker Sands Photography Gallery for the first look at this exhibition containing 40 of renowned American nature photographer Thomas D. Mangelsen’s most resonant images. Mangelsen has traveled throughout the natural world for nearly 50 years observing and photographing the Earth’s last great wild places.
From polar bears in the Arctic to vast herds of game on the plains of Africa, from the deep jungles of South America to the tigers of India, to images revealing the diversity of wildlife in the American West, Mangelsen has captured rare moments and vast panoramas from all seven continents.
One such image is Catch of the Day, one of the most widely circulated wildlife photographs in history.
Another is Polar Dance, a whimsical portrait of polar bears appearing to prance in the Arctic.
The exhibition opens to the general public at noon, May 14.
