Experience the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon Through Pictures

Each photographer brings between two to three of their pieces for the exhibit.

DULUTH, Minn. – Even if you don’t make it out to the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon you can still enjoy some of the race scenery.

Now through March 11 the Great Lakes Aquarium will showcase race images.

You’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with some of the dogs through pictures.

The exhibit is in its eighth year and features 24 photographers.

For the first time ever, two watercolor artists are also on display.

The exhibit has been a hit with many.

“The great thing about this show is it’s very exciting to photographers and just people who love animals, people who love dogs, but children really love this show too,” said Great Lake Aquarium Director of Communications Allison Iacone. “They love coming here and seeing the pictures of the dogs. People who are sled dog enthusiasts, who love animals, really love this show.”

The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon begins on Sunday, Jan. 28.

On march 11 there will be a closing reception where the public can meet the artists and photographers.

“Nature and art really go hand in hand,” said Iacone. “A lot of what happens in the natural world and around Duluth and the Great Lakes Basin really is an artistic and beautiful experience to be able to showcase that in an artistic way just really is sort of part of what we can do here.”
