On the Wing: A Brief Survey of Birds in Art

This lecture will place the work of Judy Cotton and Michael DiGiorgio within the context of bird representations in different cultures and through the ages. It will demonstrate how a focus on mythology and symbolism has reflected humanity’s abiding fascination with flight, as well as the more recent ecological concerns about the fate of the original flyers.
