Opening Night Reception for Tyler Schlitt Photography Show

11/30/2019 | Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic Site | Pilot Knob, MO

Missouri State Parks is proud to host a special showing of original photographs, as part of our ongoing winter Artist Spotlight program. Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic Site and Elephant Rocks State Park will host a show featuring images of Elephant Rocks by photographer Tyler Schlitt. 

To kick off this exciting show, we will host a special “meet the artist” reception on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the historic site museum. During this event, Schlitt will be available to discuss his work and visit with interested artists and photographers as well as the general public. Light refreshments will be provided, and the event is free to the public.

About the Artist

Tyler Schlitt's passion for photography started when he got his first camera as a gift; he then quickly fell in love with storm chasing and photographing storm scapes.

He is currently working on finishing up his spring, summer and fall review video of the year. In the last year, he photographed the Milky Way and meteors over Elephant Rocks. More recently, he has been working on fall colors and sunsets; he will photograph another meteor shower in December.

Schlitt travels two hours to spend time at Elephant Rocks. He says there's always something new and unique about the rocks every time he visits. He enjoys being at the park right around sunset to enjoy the peace and watch as the sun sets for the day. 

The museum will have Schlitt’s series of photographs highlighting the unmatched beauty of the geological wonder that is Elephant Rocks State Park. To view examples of Schlitt’s spectacular work, visit
