On July 28th, we were invited to participate in the Final Friday celebration for the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Wild exhibition, which featured photographs from legendary National Geographic photographer and wildlife advocate Michael “Nick” Nichols. Local artist & performer Gina Murdock brought two readings from the upcoming book to life—one story from Yosemite and the other from Yellowstone. Watch both performances below!
