Illuminating Birds Saturday Events Series with artist Sarah Kaizar
Start Date: 10/7/2023Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 10/7/2023End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Join illustrator Sarah Kaizar for an all-ages creative workshop exploring shape, color and light.

Using a cluster of old-school overhead projectors, participants will create mini-ecosystem dioramas that will be projected onto the walls of the Illuminating Birds exhibit. Participants are invited to think about the role of stewardship and what species need in their surroundings to thrive.

Sarah Kaizar is a multidisciplinary illustrator and designer whose work has been seen in regional galleries and museums including the Woodmere Art Museum, Delaware Contemporary and the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. She is the author of HIKER TRASH: Notes, Sketches + Other Detritus on the Appalachian Trail, an illustrated work based on her hike from Georgia to Maine. Her second book will be released in September 2023, an illustrated work about North American bird conservation and citizen science titled RARE AIR: Endangered Birds, Bats, Butterflies and Bees. The companion art exhibition is currently on view at the Michener Art Museum through November 5, 2023.
