Endangered Birds of the Philippines
SF Main Library Exhibit - Stegner Environmental Center – Oct. 19 – March 28 

Artist Talk – October 19th at 1:45pm in the Koret Theater.
On Oct. 19 Jeepney Projects Worldwide will give a presentation about their inspiring trip to Mindanao to see the Great Philippine Eagle, its fragile future, and the incredibly rich bird life of the Philippines.
Created by artist David Tomb, the exhibit features mixed media artwork that celebrates the iconic and critically-endangered Great Philippine Eagle and other endangered birds. Through luminous and colorful paper assemblages that convey the ambiguous and mysterious jungle terrain of the Philippine island of Mindanao, a collection of photographs and educational information, Tomb and Jeepney Projects Worldwide bring attention to the challenges these grand birds face in order to survive and share a sustainable future with an ever-growing Filipino population.
