Urban Wildlife: Learning to Co-Exist

Exhibit Opening and Presentation “Providence Raptors” by photographer Peter Green

 

Thursday, July 26, 6-8pm 

 

RISD Illustration Studies Building (ISB), 55 Canal Walk, Providence, RI 02903

 

 

The goal of this exhibit is to encourage the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban animals. We invite artists to collaborate with scientists to create art for an exhibit that explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and the human responses to this shared territory.

Peter Green is a freelance graphic designer and photographer living and working in downtown Providence. He bikes the city, documenting the Peregrine Falcons and other birds of prey from Red-Tailed Hawks nesting on rooftops to American Kestrels hunting in graffiti-covered alleys. These regal, powerful raptors seem perfectly at home among the landscape of brick and steel and concrete. Peter is also proud to be a member of the WRARI Board of Directors. His talk is part if the WRARI summer lecture series. For a preview of Peter's photography visit his website at: providenceraptors.com
