The Amazing Kolb Brothers, A Grand Life at the Grand Canyon, Exhibit will continue to be hosted by Kolb Studio on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park through the month of March 2013.  This exhibit is open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm and is free and open to the public.

The Kolb brothers are legend at the Grand Canyon for their pioneering spirits and treasure trove of photographs.  Ellsworth and Emery arrived at the South Rim in the dawning years of the 20th Century, long before the Grand Canyon was designated a national park.  Stories of their adventures, their family and their enduring photography business on the Rim are told for the first time in exhibit form and displayed in their historic studio.

At first glance, Kolb Studio is just a house perched on the rim of Grand Canyon, but if you look behind the doors or see it from the Bright Angel Trail after a long hike from the river, you realize it is much more than that.  It is the place where the Kolb Brothers created a lasting legacy of adventure, family love, and amazing Grand Canyon photography that will last as long as the Canyon itself.

Kolb Studio was once the home and business site of the Kolb Brothers, pioneering photographers and filmmakers at the Grand Canyon.  This rambling, Victorian-era building (1905) has been restored to its original splendor, and currently houses an exhibit of artifacts and historic Grand Canyon photography by the Kolb Brothers.  During your visit, be sure to visit Kolb Studio and shop in the bookstore, located in the Village Historic District at the Bright Angel trailhead.  The exhibit is open through Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

This exhibit is presented by the Grand Canyon Association, Cline Library, and Grand Canyon National Park.  Additional funding is provided by the Babbitt Foundation, Pink Jeep Tours Las Vegas & Sedona, and Ms. Penny Schultz.
