Photographer Amy Gulick, multimedia designer David Jolosky and visitor center assistant director Nikki Hinds prepare the new A Salmon Forest exhibit at the Mendenahll Glacier Visitor Center.

The public is invited to the final Fireside Lecture of the 2014 season on Friday, March 28 at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center. This lecture will feature a new exhibit created by author and photographer Amy Gulick.

The exhibit, called A Salmon Forest, is a 10- by 20-foot piece donated by Gulick. The exhibit will make its debut at the lecture, where Gulick will discuss how the piece came together.

Gulick is well known for her successful photo/essay book Salmon in the Trees, winner of a Nautilus Book Award and an Independent Publisher Book Award. Alaska Geographic will sell books during the program. Gulick will be available to autograph copies before and between Friday’s programs which start at 6:30 p.m. and repeat at 8 p.m. Special refreshments will be served in commemoration of the new installation. Doors open for this free event at 5:30 p.m.

The visitor center will be open March 28, 29 and 30 then close for the month of April except for two special events: a lecture and photo show on future development plans by center director John Neary at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, and Earth Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 19.
