Today is the last day to see Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity. Presenting 80 works of art from around the world, the exhibition features artists who celebrate biodiversity’s exquisite complexity, interpret natural and human-induced extinctions of plants and animals, and focus on endangered species from diverse ecosystems. It also includes the work of artists who spotlight the human activities that threaten biodiversity alongside projects that revitalize habitats and reconnect people to the rich tapestry of life. From rare books to cutting-edge video, artwork spans the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries.
