The Lost Bird Project is a film about public art, extinction and memory. Gone and nearly forgotten in extinction, the Labrador Duck, the Great Auk, the Heath Hen, the Carolina Parakeet, and the Passenger Pigeon leave holes not just in the North American landscape but in our collective memories. Moved by their stories, sculptor Todd McGrain set out to create memorials to the lost birds—to bring their vanished forms back into the world.
The SCWF invites you to join us as we remember species we have lost and discuss ways to prevent the disappearance of other wildlife in the future.
Following the film, a panel discussion will include: Josh Arrants, Clay Bolt, Drew Lanham, and Rudy Mancke.
