Artist DAVID TOMB presents

The Philippine Eagle 
and the Art of Conservation

at a special reception

Friday, May 11, 2018 
5 to 7 pm

Art maker, birder, and traveler, David Tomb will talk shop:
birds, art, and conservation! 
Best of all worlds!

Tomb will also discuss the two large art diorama installations in his solo exhibition Rockfowl and Other Wonders and the inspiration, research, and art-making ideas behind the works. We will have an in-depth conversation about the fabulous and critically endangered Philippine Eagle, its current status, how it got there, and its uncertain future. Jeepney Projects Worldwide, Tomb’s art-for-conservation group, will be a featured topic as well and how art can play a role in conservation.

David’s talk will begin in the Fresno Art Museum’s Bonner Auditorium and move into the gallery where Rockfowl and Other Wonders is exhibited. The talk will be followed by time for questions and conversation and a special reception with light appetizers, no-host wine bar.

Museum Members: $5 
Non-Museum Members: $10 

Space/seating limited.
No advance ticket sales before 4 pm on May 11.
