Dr. Todd Wood, museum director, said “Visions of Africa,” photographs by Sharon Smythe, a 2011 graduate, will be displayed through March 2, 2012. The photographs were taken during Ms. Smythe’s internship in Kruger National Park in South Africa this past summer.

“Pictures include animals ranging in size from ants to elephants and give a hint of the great diversity to be found in that area,” Dr. Wood said. “In these breathtaking pictures you also get a glimpse at the magnificent landscape in the park where she worked.” During her internship she worked on wildlife management and water table monitoring.

The photographer will be honored at a reception Monday, Nov. 28, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Henning Museum in Mercer Hall.
