What's a human? We are, at our core, social mammals. We build relationships, communicate, reproduce, establish territories, and adapt to shrinking resources. In these ways, we're no different than other social mammals. Chimpanzees, wolves and gorillas are among the most charismatic of the mammals we know. We identify with them as species, groups and even as named individuals. They're also under threat. Join biologist-turned-photographer Ronan Donovan as he talks about his work in documenting these animals and what we, as fellow social mammals, can learn from them.
Special Preshow Printmaking Demonstration
Be sure to come early (6:30 pm–7:15 pm) to make your own social animal-related print with Johanna Mueller. Mueller's work will be included in an upcoming exhibit in The Lincoln Center Art Gallery and is a well-known artist in the field of printmaking with a MFA from George Mason University and multiple artist residencies. Animals are the primary focus of her work because they can tell universal stories and shine a light on our shared humanness.
