A Closer Look

At conservation…
at nature…
at ourselves.

It’s been said that art is all in the details… and that’s precisely what “A Closer Look” aims to explore. The often-overlooked world of particulars, specifics and minutia is unmistakably found within Todd McGrain’s Lost Bird Project, Bree Deverill’s wall art and Eirini Pajak’s macro-photography.

The “little” things matter. We hope the artwork you see here in the Savanna Gallery inspires you to reconnect with the insatiable beauty in the details.

The Lost Bird Project

The Lost Bird Project is part natural history, part artist’s diary, documenting the extraordinary effort to place a series of public memorials to birds driven to extinction in modern times. As a chronicle of humankind’s impact on our changing world and a moving record of dwindling biodiversity, The Lost Bird Project is an ode to vanished times and vanished species. 

The Great Auk, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon, Carolina Parakeet, and Heath Hen were birds that once filled unique niches in the North American landscape from the shores of Labrador and New York to the Midwestern plains. Across the great American prairie, the skies were nearly black with Passenger Pigeons whose disappearance, like the buffalo’s, was thought to be inconceivable.
