"Facing the Inferno: The Wildfire Photography of Kari Greer," an exhibition organized by Moscow Contemporary, opens on April 9 at the Idaho State Museum. Greer, a former firefighter who specializes in editorial photojournalism and wildland fire photography, provides a look into the increased fire activity across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Her work provides keen and sharp insight to the intensity of wildfires and the experiences of the firefighters who face them through 64 powerful images.
The museum will offer all-ages public programming that explores Idaho’s connection to forest management throughout the duration of the exhibit. The exhibit’s opening day coincides with the monthly Family Second Saturday program, which includes themed family activities and special guest appearance from Smokey Bear and representatives from the Boise National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management Boise District.
