Urban Wildlife: Learning To Co-Exist

Amy Chen Blanketed at RISD Illustration Studies Building Gallery

There’s a really excellent group show up now in RISD’s Illustration Studies Building, one in which artists collaborated with conservationists to study the effects of urban development on the animal kingdom. As it turns out, some animals adapt easily to an urban environment (coyotes), some don’t (cottontail rabbits), and some have a more complicated relationship (ants). Curated by RISD professor Lucy Spelman, the show features solid work in a variety of media. The really nifty part, though, is that each piece is accompanied by a little research report from the artist about their chosen animals.

*There’s a lot of evening programming to coincide with this show. On Thursday from 5-8pm there’s a public reading from Frequency Writers entitled Writing to Co-Exist with Wildlife.
