Join artist David Tomb for an informal walk through and discussion of his art exhibition, Endangered Birds of the Philippines, at the SF Public Library's Environmental Center. David's talk will focus on conservation of the Great Philippine Eagle and other endangered birds and he'll answer questions about his luminous mixed media works.

Tomb's works are colorful paper assemblages with subtle low-relief elements that convey the complex space and mysterious jungle terrain of the Philippine island of Mindanao. Through this project, Tomb and Jeepney Projects Worldwide bring attention to the challenges these noble birds face in order to survive and share a sustainable future with an ever-growing Filipino population.
David Tomb is a co-founder of Jeepney Projects. He has exhibited in galleries, universities, and museums nationally and internationally and has been published widely in periodicals including New York Times, New Yorker, and Harpers. Tomb's work is represented in numerous public collections including Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Huntington Library, and Consulate General of the United States in Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez.
