In honor of Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary, in November, of the publication of On the Origin of Species, Lafayette College’s Williams Center Gallery and the Shrewsbury Museum, Shropshire, England, will present joint exhibitions of works by the environmental artist Brandon Ballengée this fall. An amateur biologist and activist, environmental artist Ballengée explores the boundaries between art and science, creating, for more than a decade, works about “bio-indicator” species, such as amphibians, fish, and birds.

The exhibition comprises three related sections: A Habit of Deciding Influence: Pigeons from Charles Darwin’s Breeding Experiments; The Absent Birds of America: RIP; and Coop.

Williams Center Art Gallery: Exhibition through January 16th, 2010
