Benefit Exhibition for the Venice Arts Young Explorer Campaign
In 2012, four photographers—Stu Levy, Phil Straus, Rita Swinford, and Jasmine Swope—traveled along the Colorado River, from Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek, capturing its geography and history through fine-art photography. This exhibition brings together their photographic visions of this spectacular landscape, and is a benefit to support the new Venice Arts Young Explorer Campaign, which will send Venice Arts’ students on a sponsored program to explore the Grand Canyon, offering them an opportunity of a lifetime to travel on the river, explore the history and geology of the environment, and document their experiences through photography, film/video, and multimedia.
