Facing Extinction
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
9 March 2014 — May 2014

In 1914, the last known passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) died at the Cincinnati Zoo. A bird species that once numbered in the billions was decimated by humans within half a century. One hundred years later, we are still grappling with the environmental, cultural, and moral issues of human-caused extinctions. In this group exhibition, artists present work that addresses the extinction—and survival—of species and the potential resiliency of Earth's biodiversity.

Featured artists:
Annette Barbier — Carol Freeman — Jenny Kendler — Kristina Knowski — Joel Sartore — Molly Schafer — Diana Sudyka — and artists of the Endangered Species Print Project
