Exhibition | Urban Wildlife: Learning to Co-Exist

Please join us for an exhibition and series of talks and demonstrations exploring the lives of wild animals in urban areas and human responses to sharing territory. Borne of scientist/artist collaborations, this mini-symposium encourages the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban animals. ​Co-curator and RISD faculty member Lucy Spelman​ explains that  while expansion of villages, towns and cities creates new homes for some animals, it displaces others. The goal of the exhibition — sponsored by RISD and Creature Conserve, a non-profit outreach organization dedicated to bringing artists and scientists together to foster animal conservation — is to help people understand that our continued success depends on a diverse and healthy animal kingdom.
