The Rockwell Museum of Western Art, currently exhibiting 125 years of National Geographic Photographs of the American West, is presenting a lecture by National Geographic photographer, Aaron Huey in the Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium. Please join us for an unforgettable evening.

Huey came to prominence in 2002 as a result of his 3,349-mile, 154 day, solo walk across America with his dog, Cosmo. Since then, he has done work across the globe as a photographer for both National Geographic Adventure and National Geographic Traveler magazines. His work has taken him to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Georgian Republic, Iceland, Siberia, Burma, the Dominican Republic, and many locations in the U.S. He freelances regularly including The New Yorker, the Smithsonian, and the New York Times among others. He has received numerous awards and grants for his innovation in combining multimedia storytelling and photography, giving voice to communities where he has done in depth investigation. Aaron now uses Seattle, Washington as home base in between his travels.

His lecture will focus on his work with the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota that appeared as the cover story in the August 2012 issue of National Geographic magazine. Through his photographs and sound recordings, he will discuss his seven years working with the Oglala Lakota People. He will recount the history of white versus Lakota interactions from first contact through the contemporary resistance movements of today. Huey will accept questions at the conclusion of his presentation.

A limited edition series of offset prints made in collaboration with artist Shepard Fairy will be given out to the first 75 in attendance.

Adults: $10.00 Students: $4.00
