MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota is opening a new exhibit on Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The exhibit, “Arctic Sanctuary: Our Collective Refuge,” features large format photographs and text by wilderness landscape photographer Jeff Jones and writer Laurie Hoyle.

Their book, “Arctic Sanctuary: Images of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge,” commemorates the 50th anniversary of the creation of the wildlife refuge.

The exhibit opens June 25 in the Bell Museum’s Jaques Gallery and will continue through Sept. 4.

The Bell Museum is Minnesota’s official natural history museum where more than four million specimens support ongoing research and teaching at the university.
