Savannah Survivors, First Canadian Place

Media release for Savannah Survivors

Wednesday April 15, 2015, First Canadian Place hosted Dr. Roberta Bondar’s Savannah Survivors exhibition, her public lecture sponsored by BMO, & the exhibition’s opening reception in the FCP Gallery.

To celebrate Earth Month, The Roberta Bondar Foundation presents a unique exploration of the shrinking African Savannah through fine art photography. With extraordinary images from The Foundation’s biome collection, 26 large fine art prints connect the viewer to the extraordinary and poignant savannah life as it lives in its natural environment. Highlights include “secretaries” who eat snakes for breakfast and savannah survivors who will eat your lunch.

The exhibition runs April 1- May 29, 2015 and forms part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

The Roberta Bondar Foundation now partners with Wood Buffalo NP on Whooping Crane education and will continue to update our field work news on Grus americana, the North American Whooping Crane, from this Whooper Link.

A selection of The Foundation’s Travelling Exhibition and Learning Experience collection appears in the Dreams & Realities—Human Sensitivity of Place in which Dr. Bondar’s large scale Earth landscape photographs join Carole Sabiston’s exploration of environmental concerns through textile assemblage — both artists inspired by the same childhood view of Sputnik!
