A Pictorial History of Arizona from Prehistory to the Present

February 23 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this program could fill a seven-volume history of Arizona. From the geological wonders of the Grand Canyon and the Petrified Forest to cutting-edge biotech industries and Native American art galleries, this whirlwind pictorial history tour of Arizona from prehistory to the present shows it all. In addition to beautiful landscape photography and historic site images, this engaging program addresses Arizona‘s cultural diversity, mining, and the history of water use.
