Kenneth Barrick, UAF associate professor of geography, will speak about Crandall, an artist whose subjects included some of the most iconic images of the Teton Range, cowboys and cowgirls, wildflowers and park recreation.
Barrick’s new book, “Harrison R. Crandall, Creating a Vision of Grand Teton National Park,” includes many color reproductions of Crandall’s works and will be available for purchase and signing following the presentation. Books will be provided by Gulliver’s Books.
Barrick said, “Hank Crandall was a true visionary. Although he devoted his artistic attention to Grand Teton National Park, he is now credited with helping establish and expand the Park, and with inspiring early national park preservationists like Horace Albright, the second director of the National Park Service.”
The talk will feature images of many of Crandall’s landscape oil paintings and photographs, which he produced between 1920 and 1960. Some examples of Crandall’s original art will be on display.
Parking is free on the UAF campus after 5 p.m.
