Cranes and Artists: A Creative Dance

This online-only exhibition, featuring a selection of artwork from the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum collection, arose from an International Crane Foundation “From the Field Series” webinar. The conversation during this “Cranes and Artists: A Creative Dance” webinar on June 18, 2020, featured Lizzie Condon, ICF Whooping Crane Outreach Coordinator, and the Museum’s director Kathy Kelsey Foley and museum educator Catie Anderson and images of these artworks.

Watch this Cranes and Artists: A Creative Dance webinar via the International Crane Foundation’s From the Field Series.

Also, in celebration of artist John Busby’s life and work, his family shares this short film showcasing his work.”The artist’s job is to open eyes – to see what is hidden, to make connections, to put into shapes, colours, textures and forms, thoughts that re-assemble facts and feelings, and catch echoes of what might be to come – above all to make something memorable and true.” – John Busby
