Featured Exhibit: Catherine Chalmers

Catherine Chalmers is a multi-media artist whose work focuses on the complex relationship between nature and culture.  Using video, photography, drawing and sculpture, her work aims to give form to the richness, as well as the brutality and indifference that often characterize our connection with animals.  She uses art as a medium to explore and expand her involvement with nature and to discover a way to broaden the cultural significance of the non-human world.

Citizen Science Project: CondorWatch

CondorWatch is a new citizen science program which hopes to improve understanding of the California condor and reduce some of the dangers to its existence. The project asks volunteers to look at photographs of condors, identify the tag number of each condor, and describe behaviors that are easily observed to give researchers a peek into the social networks of these iconic birds.
