Patterns & Parallels: The Great Imperative to Survive
July 13, 2023 - September 30, 2023
This summer the Art Gallery of Algoma is thrilled to present the exhibition of new photographs by Dr. Roberta Bondar: Patterns & Parallels ~ The Great Imperative to Survive.
Patterns & Parallels ~ The Great Imperative to Survive is a timely exhibition that highlights the great distances and habitats needed by three endangered or threatened international migratory birds that are now facing the challenge of climate change—the Lesser Flamingo, the Whooping Crane and the Piping Plover. This initiative was inspired by the natural phenomena of avian migration coupled with Dr. Bondar’s lifelong passion for flight and her unique perspective of planet Earth gained on her pioneering international space mission in 1992.
