If you live in Portland, Oregon, you may have seen one or more of these billboards featuring Art’s photos. Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge is produced in association with Oregon Public Broadcasting. As one fan wrote, “Kudos to OPB for going with a campaign that feels daring in its simplicity.” Let us know if you’ve seen any of them.
The G2 Gallery in Venice, California, rolled out the red carpet for Art this past weekend with a lovely catered event for his terrific new exhibit. It will run through August 1, 2010. And the show benefits the Natural Resources Defense Council
