"At Mono Lake" Exhibit Comes Home to Mono Lake
The Mono Basin Scenic Area Visitor Center of the Inyo National Forest is currently displaying the "At Mono Lake" photographic exhibit.
Complementary to the creation of the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area in 1984, Congress granted a one-time appropriation for the construction of a Visitor Center for the Scenic Area. The Visitor Center is situated on a promontory overlooking Mono Lake and the islands, and is located one-half mile north of the town of Lee Vining. The Visitor Center exhibits are designed to enhance visitor understanding and appreciation of the ecosystem.
The "At Mono Lake" photographic exhibit conveys an aesthetic and historical understanding of the lake, and as such is an integral part of the interpretation of the ecosystem. The gallery in the Visitor Center has been specially designed to house "At Mono Lake."
The display and curation of the "At Mono Lake" exhibit have been integrated into the planning and design of the Visitor Center. After extensive consultation with architects and photographers, an exhibit gallery was designed with controlled temperature, humidity, and lighting to promote the preservation of the photographs in both display and storage. The gallery overlooks the Mono Lake and Black Point.
Visitor Center hours change seasonally.
