Arts & Eats Event- "Explore Our Channel Islands" Collection
There is something about exploring the Channel Islands National Park that makes me feel like a kid on a wild adventure.
Islands that are so close to home yet so remote and removed from the grind of everyday life, Santa Cruz and Anacapa islands really are a place where you can let go and escape, even if for just a day.
Being on the islands inspires me to capture it's unique beauty. I love photographing the rugged golden cliffs and wildlife. Recently I flew over four of the islands on a helicopter and got a birds eye view...their untouched beauty took my breath away. Truly majestic!Join us at Latitudes for an exciting evening celebrating the wild and natural beauty of "Our Channel Islands". Often referred to as "America's Galapagos", the Channel Islands National Park, located just off the Ventura coast. It encompasses 5 remarkable islands and their ocean environment, with unique animals, plants and archaeological resources found nowhere else on earth.
The art collection highlights new aerial photographs of the islands by Stephanie Hogue and classic favorites by Steve Munch.
In collaboration with Channel Islands Park Foundation, we welcome two island experts to share exciting info and stories.
-The President of the foundation, Marcella Klein-Williams, to share insights and information about the islands.
