Join us on Thursday, January 21st, at 6 p.m. for the opening night lecture for Birds of the Northeast: Gulls to Great Auks, presented by Brian Walker, Professor of Biology at Fairfield University.

Birds of the Northeast: Gulls to Great Auks features paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, photographs, and natural history specimens from the early 19th century through the present day. Curated by Carey Weber and Fairfield University Biology professors Brian Walker, Jim Biardi and Tod Osier, the show complements the installation on Fairfield’s campus of The Lost Bird Project by artist Todd McGrain. On view from October 2020 to June 2021, these five monumental sculptures were created as a public memorial to birds driven to extinction in modern times. Learn more about the exhibition here.
