What at first glance may appear to be abstract visions are actually large-scale photographs of the American landscape. David Maisel, showing four portions of his larger "The Mining Project" exhibit, highlights both beauty and destruction as he shows viewers the environmental consequences of mining, water diversion projects, and urban sprawl. Join Maisel and Young Museum Chief Curator Julian Cox for a discussion after the opening reception. Days, times vary.
