A WING AND A CARE — BUILDING A FUTURE FOR BIRDS

Lecture by Shawn Carey

Wednesday, 25 March, 2020 — 7:00-8:30 PM

Co-sponsored by Sweethaven Gallery and Firehouse Center for the Arts

 

 

Snowy Owls, Atlantic Puffins, and American Kestrels are connected by more than simply a resemblance of form or function. A crucial thread ties them together: each one has an advocate committed to protecting it and educating others about its plight. Migration Productions’ latest work, “A Wing And A Care,” opens a window onto the lives of these three birds, and introduces you to the men dedicated to their preservation and survival.

“A Wing And A Care” follows the stories of these three men as they work to protect the birds they love, and shows how a single individual can make a world of difference in the life of a bird. And it asks a critical question: how can each one of us get involved and help build a better future for these incredible birds?

San Francisco Rock — The Acid Age

Lecture and photographs by Herb Greene

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 — 7:00-8:30 PM

Co-sponsored by Sweethaven Gallery and Firehouse Center for the Arts

 

Jerry Garcia, 1967 — © Herb Greene

 

The music revolution was a vital and integral component of the sixties San Francisco art scene. Herb Greene photographed the rock musicians and other members of San Francisco’s cultural milieu during the height of its creative productivity. Greene, a friend of many of San Francisco’s most influential musicians, worked as few photographers have: not as a documenter from the outside, but as a participant within the music scene he was photographing.

Many of his photographs have become signature portraits of these musicians. His revealing portraits of The Jefferson Airplane, Jeff Beck, The Pointer Sisters, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana, Sly Stone, Rod Stewart and many others helped create astonishing family album for an entire generation.
