It's Been A Long Time...
My first email in a year. 2016 was intensely busy with overwhelming lows and highs. Two deaths in my immediate family (10 months apart) were staggeringly disorienting. But several commissions, exhibits and talks buoyed a sense of purpose in celebrating the Centennial of the National Park Service. I look forward to 2017 and participating in the next chapter of the NPS as it reaches out to a new generation.

Named for the legislator who co-sponsored the bill, the Otis Pike High Dune Wilderness Area (OPHDWA), 50 miles east of New York City, is a seven mile stretch of barrier islands set aside by Congress in 1964. It's the only federally-protected wilderness in New York State, one of the smallest managed by the NPS and part of the 109 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. The discounted price for this signed and numbered print (8.5" x 11") includes shipping. Purchases support my exhibits and research.
