McAllen, TX—Beginning September 14, 2015 the STC Pecan Campus Library Art Gallery, will present “Faces and Places of the Chihuahuan Desert,” an exhibition organized by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

“Faces and Places of the Chihuahuan Desert” is composed of thirty-one photographs from the work of University of Texas at El Paso professor emeritus Dr. Robert H. Schmidt. Dr. Schmidt’s background is in natural resources and physical geography. For the last three decades he has tracked changes in the Chihuahuan Desert. This exhibition presents, in visual form, an interpretation of scientific information about the region of the Chihuahuan Desert.

The South Texas College Library Art Gallery presents “Faces and Places of the Chihuahuan Desert” as a means to promote ongoing dialogue about the significance of natural landscapes and the effect of human actions upon them.

The exhibition will be available to the public from September 14 to October 26, 2015.
