I had hoped to visit the Yale Art Gallery this spring to see an incredible exhibit by the artist James Prosek, but then Covid-19 hit and the museum had to close.
The good news is that the exhibition has been extended for when the museum reopens, and Prosek is giving a free Zoom talk on his latest book this week.
Here's the write-up from the museum:
Join us on Thursday, June 25, at 5:30 pm (EST), for the virtual launch of James Prosek: Art, Artifact, Artifice, a publication by award-winning artist, writer, and naturalist James Prosek, B.A. 1997. Prosek will read an excerpt from the book and discuss his deep connection with the natural world. Followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Tiffany Sprague, Director of Publications and Editorial Services.
You can register here.
What does this have to with this the real James Bond? One of the birds Bond collected is part of the artwork above.
I will explain in a post next week. (Every bird tells a story...)
