NYC Parks’ Ebony Society invites you to celebrate Black History Month with the Arsenal Gallery exhibition The Migration.

In the midst of tremendous upheaval—two world wars and the Great Depression—a vast movement of people, some 6 million African American descendants of the Antebellum South, fled the racial segregation and discrimination of Jim Crow laws for northern and western U.S. cities. The “Great Migration,” as it is commonly termed, caused a seismic societal demographic shift and left an indelible mark on the urbanization of America. Twenty-two artists share their interpretations of this historical epoch and its impact.

The “Great Migration,” as it is commonly termed, caused a seismic societal demographic shift and left an indelible mark on the urbanization of America.

NYC Parks’ Ebony Society invites you to celebrate Black History Month with the Arsenal Gallery exhibition The Migration.

In the midst of tremendous upheaval—two world wars and the Great Depression—a vast movement of people, some 6 million African American descendants of the Antebellum South, fled the racial segregation and discrimination of Jim Crow laws for northern and western U.S. cities. The “Great Migration,” as it is commonly termed, caused a seismic societal demographic shift and left an indelible mark on the urbanization of America. Twenty-two artists share their interpretations of this historical epoch and its impact.

<![CDATA[Lecture with New York City Audubon in Conjunction with the Artwork of Alan Messer]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/18/lecture-with-new-york-city-audubon-in-conjunction-with-the-artwork-of-alan-messer http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/18/lecture-with-new-york-city-audubon-in-conjunction-with-the-artwork-of-alan-messer Date: March 18, 2015

In conjunction with the Arsenal Gallery exhbiition "Conserving Our City of Nature:The Artwork of Alan Messer." Dr. Susan B. Elbin and Debra Kriensky from NYC Audubon will host a lecture about their educational and conservation initiatives. NYC Audubon has worked for over 30 years to protect wild birds and their habitat in the five boroughs, through public outreach and advocacy, educational programming, and scientific research.

Many New Yorkers are unaware of the 350 species of wild birds—almost a third of all bird species in North America—that live in or pass through New York City each year. Artist Alan Messer skillfully captures many, from exquisite migrating Blackburnian Warblers in Central Park’s ramble to a Northern Harrier scanning the vast marshes of Jamaica Bay.

"Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer" presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.

Please note: Admission is free but space is limited. To RSVP, email artandantiquities@parks.nyc.gov.

NYC Audubon’s director of conservation and science, Dr. Susan Elbin is an ornithologist who has worked in the field of behavioral ecology and conservation for more than 25 years. Susan’s specialties are avian behavioral ecology and conservation of colonial waterbirds. She is co-chair of the Harbor Herons Subcommittee within the Harbor Estuary Program and is president of the Waterbird Society. Susan is an adjunct professor at Columbia University where she teaches courses in ornithology and migration ecology.

Debra Kriensky is a conservation biologist at NYC Audubon. She began there as an intern studying horseshoe crab and shorebird populations in Jamaica Bay while pursuing her Master’s degree in conservation biology at Columbia University.
