On August 18th the Mountaineering Museum and American Alpine Club Library will be displaying the second round of Bradford Washburn photographic prints and YOU get the special opportunity to pick which prints go into the exhibit!

Gene, Ken and Laura Karstens won the last auction and picked a Denali focused group of prints for the first round. This was very special as they are the family of Harry Karstens, namesake of Karstens Ridge on Denali.On permanent loan to the American Alpine Club from Cody Smith, the 175 framed photographic prints are Bradford Washburn’s personal favorites.

For this exhibit the museum will be displaying a second round of 20 select prints chosen by YOU to be hung through October! Place a bid in our online auction for the chance to go behind the scenes with archivist and curatorial staff to view the prints in our archival vault.  Once picked you will get to view your choices in the museum starting August 18th.

LET THE BIDDING BEGIN! To participate in the Museum exhibit experience auction simply go to Ebay and place your bid! Bidding begins July 28th and ends August 3rd.  If you are the winning bidder you will be invited to the museum to choose the prints for the exhibit and for your exclusive behind the scenes experience.
