Faces and Places of the Chihuahuan Desert

Exhibit Gallery, Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center

This exhibit is composed of thirty-one photographs from the work of University of Texas at El Paso professor emeritus Dr. Robert H. Schmidt.  Dr. Schmidt's background is in natural resources and physical geography.  For the last three decades, he has tracked changes in the Chihuahuan Desert.  This exhibition presents, in visual form, an interpretation of scientific information about the region of the Chihuahuan Desert.  Faces and Places is an exhibition produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
