“The Maya – A Classic View” explores both the physical remains of the Maya Classic Period from 250 to 900 AD as well as a view of the present day Maya people in Central America. The presentation will provide a visual experience through the remains of several notable Classic Mayan cities; Copan in Honduras, Tikal and Yaxha in Guatemala, and Lamanai in Belize. Observers will be fascinated by seeing things from a fresh viewpoint; dramatic landscapes, volcanic mountains and ruins of ancient temples, close-ups of botanical subjects, animals and birds, as well as a view of today’s colorful Maya people.

Dave Pressler has headed divisions of The American Museum of Natural History in New York, The Field Museum in Chicago, and the Hudson River Museum. He has exhibited widely and his work is in numerous private collections. He is President of SYNAPSIS, a creative marketing communications consulting firm and a Principal in Blackburn Pressler Associates LLC, a corporate identity and branding consultancy.
