Established by Aaron Richmond in 1938, the Series has evolved into New England's major presenting organization with over 100 performance and outreach activities annually.
Our special guest on Inquiry tonight is Katrina van Grouw. She was the former Curator of the ornithological collections at London’s Natural History Museum. She is also a taxidermist, birder, bird bander and a fine artist. The book "The Unfeathered Bird" is a stunning collection of her unconventional drawings of birds from around the world. Most of these artworks show species of birds without feathers, many without skin and muscles. But this is not a book about bird anatomy, but rather a rich visual mediation on how birds move and live, done with deep beauty and wit. The Unfeathered Bird is like no other contemporary natural history art book. Tune in and learn why.
Artist and writer Glyn Dillon has created one of the most beautiful and complex graphic novels to be published in some years: "The Nao of Brown". Tune in and learn about Dillon’s time storyboarding for film and television, how he created the painterly look of his work and the many sources for his story.
