Brenau University Online Event
Join Brenau University and Dr. Michael Stubblefield for a virtual evening of flight and fancy celebrating the history of scientific bird artwork. Stubblefield is an avid nature photographer, birder and art collector. His impressive collection of personal photographs and historical prints reveal the wonder of the natural world and, specifically, of the beautiful birds among us. Stubblefield will utilize artwork from his collection to discuss the beginnings and development of ornithological art and its most important historical figures.Stubblefield has been instrumental in the growth of Brenau’s Permanent Art Collection via the Arader Art Fund, and many of the artists and works that he will be discussing now have parallels in Brenau’s own collection.
The event is hosted by Brenau University in coordination with the Brenau University Galleries, the Office of External Relations, and the W. Graham Arader Art Fund and Initiative.
