Delta Grandeur: The Bucolic Splendor of California’s Inland Estuary

May 15, 2015

Event Navigation


Delta Grandeur celebrates and shares the extraordinary grandeur and diversity of California’s Delta, an endangered ecosystem. Produced through the eye and vision of photographer Rich Turner, the Delta is vast in its agricultural bounties and is vital in supplying one of our most necessary natural resources: fresh water.

The Delta is an expansive inland river system and the largest estuary on the West Coast of the Americas. Through vibrant imagery, this exhibition explores the complex relationship that humans and wildlife have forged with the Delta. The future of the Delta’s water is currently being debated and the outcome will impact all Californians.

Photographs by Rich Turner, a fine art, commercial and aerial photographer based in the California’s Central Valley. Delta Grandeur exhibition text is a collaboration with Christina Swanson, Ph.D, Director of the Science Center Natural Resources Defense Council. The Natural Resources Defense Council is an environmental organization that works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
