"Mountain of the Mist" was a photographic exhibition documenting some of the rare plant and animal life which inhabit a mountain in Southern Venezuela. The exhibition featured some 40 photographs taken by American Museum scientists and others who participated in a multinational expedition to the mountain, known indigenously as Cerro de la Neblina. The expedition was sponsored by the Fundacion para el Desarollo de las Ciencias, Fisicas, Matematicas y Naturales in Caracas. American Museum participation in the expedition was supported by funding from the William H. Phelps Fund and by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The color photographs chronicled the scientists' experiences and findings. Included were photographs of jungle birds; amphibians and reptiles; numerous insects; fish and plant life. The exhibit was prepared with support of the Arthur Ross Foundation and was on view in the Akeley Gallery of the American Museum of Natural History from February 26 through September 2, 1985.
