Exhibit: “The Plight of the Passenger Pigeon” at the Audubon Mansion

AUDUBON, PA — Opening Reception on Saturday, September 13, 2014, 10:00 AM – NOON
Live book readings by Kate Garchinsky (10:30 am) and Ponder Goembel, Artist(11:00 am)
Show hangs through Saturday, November 15, 2014

This special exhibit, displayed in the historical childhood home of John James Audubon, will honor the life and loss of the Passenger Pigeon. Once the most numerous bird in North America and possibly the world, the Passenger Pigeon met its extinction at the Cincinnati Zoo on September 1, 2014. Not a “messenger pigeon,” “carrier pigeon,” or a “homing pigeon,” the Passenger Pigeon was a wild force of nature that mesmerized anyone who witnessed it, including John J. Audubon. Despite its abundance, in just a few short decades of the 19th century, the Passenger Pigeon was extinguished forever through the careless exploitation of humans. The centennial of its extinction is a teachable moment. Learn more at Project Passenger Pigeon.

The show features Kate Garchinsky’s new collection of children’s book illustrations in mixed media, plus sketches and studies of the Passenger Pigeon on paper. Her iPad drawings will be on display in a digital picture frame slideshow.
