The Salton Sea History Museum is pleased to present an inaugural exhibition including work by Bill Leigh Brewer, Cristopher Cichocki, Andrew Dickson, Joe Forkan, Mary-Austin Klein, Christopher Landis, Deborah Martin, Eric Merrell, Joan Myers and Kim Stringfellow.

Kim Stringfellow will read from her book Greetings from the Salton Sea: Folly and Intervention in the Southern California Landscape, 1905—2005. She will also present a slide show of images from the book.
