    The Rockwell Museum is thrilled to bring National Geographic Photographer, Pete McBride, to Corning on Thursday, August 27, 2015. McBride will present The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict at 7:30 p.m. at The Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium.  

    Native Coloradan Pete McBride has spent almost two decades studying the world with his camera.  A self-taught, award-winning photographer, filmmaker and writer, he has traveled on assignment to over 70 countries for the publications of the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, Outside, Men’s journal, Esquire, STERN and many others.

    After a decade working mostly abroad, Pete decided to focus his cameras closer to home on a subject close to his heart.  Combining his passion for aviation and his belief in conservation, he spent over two years documenting his local river – the Colorado.  This journey culminated in the acclaimed coffee table book, “The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict”; an award-winning short film, “Chasing Water”; and a traveling exhibition, which is on view at The Rockwell August 14, 2015 – January 10, 2016.

    Supplying vital water to more than 40 million Americans living in the arid West, the Colorado River is one of the most diverted, dammed, and heavily litigated rivers in the world. The farmers and residents of the rapidly growing western states rely on the river for irrigation, drinking water, and electricity. This demand has permanently altered the river’s ecology.   

    Please join us for this unique opportunity to hear from National Geographic Photographer, Pete McBride, as he shares his story of documenting the “American Nile”.
