The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Marking the 40th anniversary of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens, this exhibition explores the overwhelming power of nature and the epic cycles of volcanic destruction and regeneration with stunning photographs, paintings and drawings of the mountain from 1845 to the present day.

Curated by Dawson Carr, Ph.D., The Janet and Richard Geary Curator of European Art.

"Even though nearly 40 years have passed since its most famous eruption, Mount St. Helens still looms large in the collective memory here in the volcanically active Pacific Northwest. This exhibit pays homage to the still-steaming cinder cone with artworks from the past 150 years that represent the mountain and all of its awe-inspiring power." – Oregon Arts Watch
