I am pleased to share with you that Western Libraries is now hosting the amazing exhibit: The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington: Photographs by Paul Bannick. Award winning photographer Paul Bannick examines the intertwined life histories of owls and woodpeckers and the unique roles they play in defining and enriching their often-threatened habitats.
The exhibit, housed in Western Libraries' Special Collections space on the 6th floor of Wilson Library, is now open for viewing from October 14, 2013 through December 31, 2013 during regular Special Collections hours (closed on weekends and on major holidays). Come check out these gorgeous pictures of extraordinary birds! (Western Libraries is also planning an event with a guest speaker to further highlight this wonderful exhibit, details coming TBA soon.)
The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington was organized by the Burke Museum, University of Washington, created with Paul Bannick and Braided River, a partner of The Mountaineers Books. Sponsorship of the local presentation of The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington is provided by Western Libraries.
