Preserving the Pinelands: Albert Horner’s Portraits of a National Treasure
October 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:45 pm
The New Jersey State Museum will host this exhibit from October 12, 2019 to June 28, 2020.
The exhibit features images which capture the quiet beauty and intimate landscapes of New Jersey’s Pinelands National Reserve by photographer Albert Horner, and artifacts from the NJ State Museum’s collections which tell just some of the stories of the land, animals, people and industries that make the Reserve a state and national treasure. Horner, a self-taught photographer from Medford Lakes, brings curiosity, reverence and a practiced eye to his craft, recording the forests, cedar swamps, meandering waterways and native wildflowers that make the Pinelands unique. In addition to being home to rare plant and animal species, the Reserve also contains archeological sites and a vibrant cultural history of craftspeople, industry and agriculture.
The NJ State Museum is open Tuesday – Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm. It is closed Mondays and on state holidays. Check their website for more information.
