What you don’t see at an exhibit is all the preparation that goes on to bring it to those walls.¬†From all the millions of National Geographic images, the exhibit staff selectively chose a wide collection of pictures to portray the American West.

After selecting the 175 photographs, every picture is worked on to eliminate blemishes, discoloration, and other imperfections that could have happened over time.

Every print is then carefully quality controlled to ensure every gallery gets a perfect collection to display.
