Photography exhibition to celebrate Yosemite's 150th anniversary

The Madera County Arts Council (MCAC) is currently seeking entries to a juried photography exhibition “A Different Look at Yosemite’s Treasures.”

The exhibition will take place May 13 to May 27, 2014, with a reception on Saturday, May 17, 2014, 4-7 pm. Any California resident may enter, and there is no fee to enter.

While there are no restrictions regarding image capture date, images should not have been previously professionally exhibited or published.

Entrants will be asked to attest that they created the image and that it has never been professionally exhibited or Yosemite National Park has been a mystical and visual inspiration for generations of visitors and residents. Photography is one of the many ways artists and visitors alike have recorded and shared Yosemite.

MCAC anticipates that this themed photography show will encourage local residents and park visitors to look closer at all the wonders of Yosemite – plant, animal, geological, hydrological, architectural and share their personal vision.

Entry instructions and complete exhibit details are posted on ( Any questions should be directed by e-mail to
