Katrina van Grouw: THE UNFEATHERED BIRD

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 11:00am

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.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
