Warren Dunes State Park lies on the Western side of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula on the shores of Lake Michigan. The most well known features of the 1,952 acre park are the large dunes including Mt. Fuller, Pikes Peak, and Mt. Edwards, and Tower Hill which is 240 feet (73 meters) above the lake.

On the day I visited, two storms rolled through the area on a very windy afternoon. When the storms broke and the sky cleared, I climbed the highest dune, Tower Hill. The dune was dotted with people climbing up and tumbling down the large hill. When I did reach top I was impressed by the sweeping views of the beach below. And in the far distance on the opposite shore I could even see the skyline of Chicago.

For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls.

    Behind the Picture: The Fifties in 3D

    In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
