For the Birds: Rare and Extinct

Through July 2015

These artworks are a sampling from a collection of more than 350 paintings commissioned for a stamp series highlighting endangered species from around the world to promote awareness and stave off extinction. The entire collection was a gift to the Woodson Art Museum from Dorothea Donaldson and Fred VanderWerven, Jr., Southampton, New York.
