Many people visit the Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico to revel in its beauty, and a new photography exhibit will provide nature enthusiasts with more information on the region.
Recently, the University of New Mexico (UNM) announced that it will debut "Chaco Uncovered: The Field Schools 1929 to Present" at the Maxwell Museum's Hibben Center for Archaeological Research to educate the public on the significance of the park. Admission is free, giving locals and tourists alike a prime opportunity to learn more about the expeditions that have been led through the location, according to The Daily Times.
"I think the motivation of the exhibit is to showcase the long collaboration of archaeologists, students becoming archaeologists and the National Park Service," Mary Beth Hermans, outreach director for the museum, told the news source. "A lot of those students were female, so this is a whole new experience that females could get into the field and do work alongside their teachers."
The first field school from UNM began its own archeological project in 1929, which is still going on today. The exhibition may encourage visitors to pursue their interest in photography in the form of a career.
Entry-level positions in the photography industry typically require a college degree, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
