Photography exhibition shows beauty of DDRS

The unique beauty of Midwestern State University’s Dalquest Desert Research Station in the Big Bend area of Texas is the subject of a photography exhibition at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas. The WFMA will host a special guest lecture at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb 2, to discuss the DDRS and the photographs.

Commissioned by MSU in 2016 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the DDRS, Rugged Beauty: The Flora and Fauna of the Dalquest Desert Research Station, is the resulting collection of photos taken by the wife and husband team of Hannah and William Meddaugh.

Associate Professor of Biology Ray Willis will introduce the audience to the Dalquest Desert Research Station and the Meddaughs will speak about their photography and experience at the research site.

The exhibition will be on display through March 18.
