A traveling photo exhibit of Mexico's environmental treasures is on
display at the Yuma Art Center through Oct. 3.
The exhibit titled "Mirar Mexico" consists of 50 photographs of wildlife and natural landscapes from around Mexico.
The exhibit was assembled to showcase Mexico's natural beauty as well as highlight the importance of environmental preservation. It was unveiled in 2009 in Mexico City, and has since traveled throughout Mexico as well as visited cities in the United States and several other countries.
Created with the support of the federal agency in Mexico that oversees environmental protection in Mexico, "Mirar Mexico" is making its first visit to Yuma. It is brought to the Yuma Art Center by Mexico's consulate here and the Yuma Fine Arts Association.
The exhibit is on display in the central gallery of the art center, 254 S. Main St., and can be seen Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The exhibit is brought here by Mexico's consulate in Yuma in collaboration with the City of Yuma.
