Liz-Green-caterpillar-smThe Smoky Mountain Field School will host an opening reception for its new photography exhibit celebrating Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s 75th anniversary from 2-3 p.m. on Monday, June 29, at the UT Conference Center, 600 Henley St.

The public is invited to attend.

The exhibit features 17 photographs taken by Field School instructors Kent Cave, Kendall Chiles, Liz Domingue and Kathy Zachry as well as two historical photographs from the National Park’s archives, including one of an animated President Franklin D. Roosevelt who participated in the Park’s
dedication in 1940.

“Not only are our Field School instructors knowledgeable about the Park, they’re also extraordinary photographers,” said Dr. Norvel Burkett, assistant provost of the University of Tennessee’s Division of University Outreach & Continuing Education. “Their photographs certainly show the beauty and diversity of our great National Park.”

“Smoky Mountain Field School: Images from the National Park’s 75th Anniversary” will be on display weekdays through the end of December on the fourth floor of the UT Conference Center. 

“We’re pleased that the University of Tennessee is celebrating the Park’s beauty with a photography exhibit,” said Dale Ditmanson, Superintendent of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. “Our educational partnership with the Smoky Mountain Field School allows us to offer enriching opportunities for participants to learn about the resources of the park in an intimate way. This exhibit will showcase a few of those magnificent resources.”

Now in its 31st year, the Smoky Mountain Field School is an educational partnership between the University of Tennessee’s Division of University Outreach & Continuing Education and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
