Hi Folks, As you may already know, tonight there is a lecture by Dr. Drew Lanham on main campus and tomorrow night we will have Sketching Night at The Museum with our Bartels Illustrators.
Lecture: Coloring the Conservation Conversation Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 7:30pm J. Drew Lanham, Ph.D., Alumni Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Ecology, Clemson University and recipient of the Dan W. Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership by the National Audubon Society Lanham will discuss what it means to embrace the full breadth of his African-American heritage and his deep kinship to nature and adoration of birds. The convergence of ornithologist, college professor, poet, author and conservation activist blend to bring our awareness of the natural world and our moral responsibility for it forward in new ways. Candid by nature — and because of it — Lanham will examine how conservation must be a rigorous science and evocative art, inviting diversity and race to play active roles in celebrating our natural world.

This event is open to the public and to artists of all skill levels, from complete beginners to seasoned experts. Admission is limited to the first 25 people that RSVP, and the suggested donation is 5$ per person. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from our Bartels illustrator-in-residence, Jen Lobo, who will provide a techniques demonstration for those looking to improve their skills. The lab’s staff biological illustrator, Jillian Ditner, will also be available to provide tips and answer questions. We ask that attendees bring their own art supplies (sketchbook or paper, pencils, colored pencils, watercolors, etc.) and use “tidy” media to minimize the risk of accidentally painting specimens. We hope to offer similar events twice a year so, if you can’t make this one, we hope to see you at others!
