Impact Proof // Artist Talk & Mini Workshop With Calder Kamin says
Calder Kamin's ongoing project, Impact Proof, provides educational workshops and bird safe installations for buildings. Windows are the number one cause of bird death or injury. Clear glass appears as an open space or endless sky to most animals. Impact Proof prevents window collisions with vinyl decals depicting illustrations of local bird species, and a hands-on activity for gallery visitors to create their own bird-strike decal using stencils by the artist. The decals both send a message to birds about an obstruction in their flight path and educate the community about one way we can make cities safer for wildlife.

This event is part of special programming for The Mother Art, an exhibition about animal architects featuring Calder Kamin, Monica Kortsha, Annell Livingston, Courtney Mattison, Marjorie Moore, and Walter Tschinkel. The exhibit is on view June 6th 7-10pm through July 18, 2015. Regular Gallery Hours are Tues - Sat 12 - 6pm.
