Charting the Canyon: Photographs by Mark Klett & Byron Wolfe
The Grand Canyon—natural wonder, sacred ground, national park, international tourist attraction—is perhaps the world’s best “photo op.” Vivid colors, breathtaking vistas and jaw dropping canyon depths have lured photographers to Northern Arizona for years. A new exhibition, Charting the Canyon: Photographs by Mark Klett & Byron Wolfe on view at the Autry National Center from September 25, 2009 through January 3, 2010, explores this celebrated place of dramatic beauty with large-scale sweeping panoramas that marry 21st century color photographs with historic drawings and images.
It’s A Howl-Oween Celebration with
Free Treats for Kids and a Pet Parade for Dogs
The streets of Downtown Burbank will be haunted by thousands of little monsters in costume and scores of pet dogs decked out to the
K-9s on October 31 from 4-7pm.
On that spooky night, kids will be trick-or-treating from store-to-store (accompanied by adults!), and dog-owners will be encouraged to bring along their favorite companion for a “mutt-see” Howl-oween Parade on the AMC Walkway. Downtown Burbank’s Halloween festivities are free and open to the public.
