Literally and symbolically, mountains are a source of liberation. But in helping some reach new heights, mountains have also been the backdrop to past and present struggles. This new exhibition from Heritage Resources features historical materals that explore the complex relationship between our love of high altitude and issues of gender, race, and class.
