    The show will feature works that address the history, present state, and possibly future of Yosemite National Park. Works will address historical subjects, current issues, and predictions or speculations on the future of the Park, including folklore or mythology. The exhibit would also include "personal visions" of Yosemite, ie "What Yosemite means to me".

    Many artists have personal connections to the park that is expressed in their work.
    In addition, it has the potential to reach outside the boundaries of the park, following the surrounding trails, railroads, rivers, streams, flumes, stage roads, etc that lead traffic in and out of the park, expanding the geography without distorting the theme.
