    Winter Light: Photographing Desert Preserves

    Event Date: December 7, 2019

    Event Time: 8:00AM- 4:30PM

    Event Description: Join us for a day of photography in two special desert places off the beaten track: Whitewater Preserve, and Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve. From the Whitewater River, to McCallum pond in an oasis of California fan palms, you’ll experience the beauty of water in the desert. Winter is an excellent season to photograph the low desert, with its cool temperatures, longer shadows and views of distant peaks.
    The day consists of photographic field sessions, group instruction and one-on-one assistance from your instructor. Your questions will be answered! You’ll learn tips and techniques for controlling sharpness, exposure, making panoramic photographs, and using lenses, along with creative exercises in photographing the desert landscape. Class begins in the morning close to the rugged cliffs of Whitewater Preserve. After lunch, we relocate to Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve for afternoon field sessions among stately palms. Hiking at each preserve is easy – to moderate; we’ll be walking on trails that are mainly level. Participants are encouraged to bring a tripod with their camera(s).

    Event Description: This strenuous, cross country hike takes you to the top of the seldom visited high point of the Hexie Mountains, Monument Mountain (Elev. 4814’). The Hexie Mountains are a small range of west to east running mountains within the Park. They begin at the southern end of the sprawling Queen Valley along the Geology Tour Road and end near the Cottonwood Visitors Center. They are rugged and seldom visited.This 6.4 mile round trip hike follows the southeast ridge of the mountain up to the base of the rocky, cone-shaped summit, where an easy rock scramble leads to the top. Along the route of ascent you may see bighorn sheep, a non-native game bird known as a chukar (similar to a quail) and a unique geologic feature in the form of a white quartz dike that has fragmented into a million little pieces. Once on top there is a commanding 360 degree view that includes the Cottonwood, Eagle and Pinto Mountains, and portions of the vast Pinto Basin. Total elevation gain is 1700’.
    Participants will need a high clearance vehicle for the 5 mile drive to the trail head. Car pooling will be necessary due to the very small parking area.Closed toe hiking shoes required

    Event Description: Journey through the music history of Joshua Tree National Park with Lauren Beth Eisenberg Davis

    Journey through the music history of Joshua Tree National Park with former Artist-in-Residence Lauren Beth Eisenberg Davis, whose boots-on-the-ground research provides a folk-life ethnohistorical look at music of the Native Americans who inhabited the park starting in the 1600s, including the Cahuilla, Serrano, and Chemehuevi; through the pioneer era comprised of miners, cattlemen, and homesteaders; to the contemporary era of the area’s mystical allure for musicians of many backgrounds and genres. She will read from her book, Songs of Joshua Tree, and lead a discussion about the music history and culture of the area.
    Lauren Beth Eisenberg Davis is a Baltimore-based writer and award-winning photographer. In 2014, she was Artist-in-Residence at Joshua Tree National Park in California. Her prior work, which focuses on the arts, social issues, travel, family history, and humor, has been published in The Baltimore Sun, Avotaynu, Art Times, New Lines from the Old Line State, The Gunpowder Review, Scribble, and Pen in Hand. She is currently working on a series of essays from her adventures visiting 100 National Park Service sites in 2016, the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service.

    Hi-Noon Museum Lecture at Hi-Desert Nature Museum

    Event Date: December 19, 2019
    Event Time: 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.

    Event Description: Museums – once focused on collections management and the dissemination of academic knowledge to the public — are increasingly embracing an additional role of promoting dialogue and diversity. This is evident in practices such as unseating academic expertise in favor of elevating hidden narratives, eschewing artifacts in favor of emotive objects, and exhibitions that broadly address difficult subjects and expose uncomfortable truths. Through this work, museums are doing something new – instead of demonstrating our shared humanity pedagogically, they are invoking and enabling it. In this presentation we will explore and experience how intimate encounters with first-hand accounts can promote empathy and new ways of relating to the world through “radical listening.” This presentation draws particularly from the speaker’s co-curating and managing of “In|Dignity” — an exhibition featuring documentary photography and first-person accounts from 43 Inland Empire community members. Participants represented marginalized demographics and intersectional identities, and their stories provide an intimate look into daily affronts to self-worth and community belonging, and at the same time hope and dignity in difference. The original exhibition (open in 2018) inspired a theatrical performance, and now a mobile show and curriculum sponsored by the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools

    Presenter Bio: Arianna Huhn is the Director of the Anthropology Museum at California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB), where she has curated a series of exhibitions centered on narratives, rather than objects. The largest of these installations was In|Dignity (2018), which received funding from California Humanities, a nonprofit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Mervyn M. Dymally African American Political & Economic Institute. Arianna holds an MA in Museum Studies from George Washington University, and a PhD in Anthropology from Boston University. She has taught courses in Anthropology, Museum Studies, and African Studies at Whittier College, San Diego State, and currently at CSUSB, where she is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology. Arianna is originally from San Diego, and currently lives in Yucaipa with her partner and two children.
