Golden Gate Audubon presents Todd McGrain and Andrew Stern
Sculptor Todd McGrain and Andrew Stern created The Lost Bird Project to raise public awareness through art of five bird species that went extinct over the past 150 years. They share a conviction that art can touch us in ways that ideas and intellect alone cannot. At our Speaker Series on October 16th, Todd and Andy will discuss the role that the arts can play in mobilizing people to address our current environmental crisis. Then on Sunday October 19, GGAS will show their film The Lost Bird Project from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ed Roberts Campus across from Ashby BART in Berkeley.
Todd McGrain, a sculptor for over 25 years, is artist-in-residence at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Andrew Stern, a practicing Zen Buddhist and neurology professor at the University of Rochester, devotes himself to raising awareness about the environment through The Lost Bird Project.
