Photos From My Blaze Orange Collection Displayed in Chippewa Valley Museum’s Deer Hunting Installation

July 22, 2013 Travis Dewitz

It is such a joy for me to be able to see my work enjoyed by others. The Chippewa Valley Museum has just put up a Hunting Traditions installation which includes three images from my Blaze Orange book project. I went there to see how the exhibit look and I was impressed. This was the first time I have been to the Chippewa Valley Museum since I was on an elementary school field trip and I can say that I have been missing out. They do such a good job with their exhibits and installations which are very informative and rich in history. I highly recommend anyone around the Chippewa Valley to go and check it out if you have never been there or you haven’t been there for a long time.

    As u know, I am not a hunter, but I can appreciate your photos. It seems a real bonding sport.

    wow wow wow! So many grungy beautiful photos. I have several favorites, one is the color steam-pressure guage and the texture of the bandanging on that pipe (?).

    Yes, you have to be a current High School stundet who is on track to graduate in 2013. I do have a questionnaire/application that I have each stundet fill out. I prefer stundets who are active in sports/clubs, the community, have a track record of being a good stundet, etc.
