Urban Wildlife Exhibit & Prov. Raptors Presentation

(7.26) Creature Conserve will be hosting an opening reception Thursday for the first installment of the Wildlife Rehabilitators Association of Rhode Island (WRARI) summer lecture series: Urban Wildlife: Learning to Co-Exist will feature artists’ illustrations and a presentation by Providence Raptors’ urban wildlife photographer, Peter Green, whose work will also be on display. (Facebook event page.)

The goal of this exhibit is to encourage the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban animals. We invited artists to collaborate with scientists to create art for an exhibit that explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and the human responses to this shared territory.

Peter Green is a freelance graphic designer and photographer living and working in downtown Providence. He bikes the city, documenting the peregrine falcons and other birds of prey from the red-tailed hawks nesting on rooftops to the American kestrels hunting in graffiti-covered alleys.

The exhibit will hang in the Illustration Studies Building (ISB) through August 18. (Extended hours on WaterFire nights, 5pm to 10pm.)

Opening reception, 6pm to 8pm, Thursday, July 26, ISB Gallery, RISD, 55 Canal Walk, (directions)
