A Life in the Wild: Renowned wildlife photographer, passionate conservationist, grizzly bear champion, Thomas Mangelsen, in person. Featured on 60 Minutes. Exhibition opening at COSI.

Thomas Mangelsen

Live and in person, in a return visit to Ohio State and EPN, upon the opening of a year-long exhibition of his iconic photographs at COSI, don’t miss the opportunity to interact with this renowned photographer and passionate wildlife conservation leader. Quoting From the Steve Johnson, Chicago Tribune arts critic review of Mangelsen’s “A Life in the Wild” exhibition (coming to COSI mid-January), “For all the beauty and how-didhe-shoot-that wonder of the imagery, the exhibit throbs, too, with an environmental message: These creatures in these places are beyond special. In Mangelsen’s compositions, there is something of the sacred to the line of gray wolves walking across a Yellowstone valley landscape or the moose on a small hill, reflected, along with the great Alaska mountain Denali, in the water below. These scenes are revealed to us not so we may glimpse a passing moment, in Mangelsen’s vision, but so that we may prove ourselves worthy of seeing more like them.”
