14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Sustainable Travel
Charles Darwin Exhibition Hall in process of being built

The photo depicts the beginning of the Exhibition Hall built at the Charles Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands. I volunteered my time and skills for the design, which raised funds for the build. I traveled to Galapagos to supervise the work and painted a mural while there. Hall opened June 2017 promoting conservation and environmental sustainability through educating locals and tourists.
