There will be two rounds of 18-20 prints hung in the museum. The first round (June to mid-August) will be a selection of Denali and Alaska-focused prints selected by Gene, Ken and Laura Karstens, the family of Harry Karstens, the namesake of Karstens’ Ridge from the first ascent of the South Summit of Denali in 1913.
The second round will run mid-August through October 26th and will include 18-20 additional selected prints from this incredible collection.
The collection is on permanent loan to the American Alpine Club from Cody Smith. Click here to learn more about the American Alpine Club Library.
