Special Second Friday exhibition opening for Amazonia Art Exhibit. "Can the Amazon be saved?” This complex and daunting question has haunted Brazil for decades. The future of the Amazon- Brazil’s biggest environmental resource and challenge- is an issue with global implications. AMAZONIA, coming to Missoula on March 13th, 2009, highlights the domestic debate now taking place in Brazil regarding what is at stake in the struggle to preserve the planet’s last major tropical forest. The series of photographs captures the dazzling and fragile beauty of the rain forest, the destruction often associated with the careless and unregulated exploration and exploitation of its abundant resources, and the enormous value it has as a source of life, knowledge, and potential economic wealth and prosperity.
