Our Last Wilderness: Photographs of Horn Island by Donald Bradburn

January 25 - March 30, 2019

In the 1960’s, Donald Bradburn, a pathologist by trade, began the fight to preserve Horn Island as a designated wilderness site. Bradburn grew public support for the cause through a series of exhibitions featuring his nature photography from Horn Island. These exhibitions, along with political negotiations and public hearings, were successful in achieving wilderness designation for the barrier island and protection from the National Parks Service.


On the fortieth anniversary of this monumental achievement, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art celebrates Dr. Bradburn’s dedication and foresight through an exhibition of his photographs.  


Cost: $10 adults; $8 seniors, military, students, and AAA. Free for members.
