Marlene Yu Museum Hosts Reception for New Photography Exhibit at February Artwalk
If colorful birds get your goose, the Rainforest Art Foundation (RAF) is the place you want to be on Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 5-8 p.m. The Marlene Yu Museum/Rainforest Art Foundation will host a reception for a new nature-inspired photography exhibit called Radiant Birds. RAF Director Stephanie Lusk said, “Occasionally, people send us photos of nature that we feel are too good not to share. The artists for this show are unknown photographers and Mother Nature.” The exhibition showcases over 20 different species of birds, each displaying impressive plumage, an interesting pattern, or a vibrant color palette.
The Rainforest Art Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with the mission to increase appreciation of nature through art. RAF was founded in 2001 by artist Marlene Tseng Yu in New York City; RAF has expanded to Zurich, Brussels, Vienna, and Frankfurt, striving to bring together nature-inspired artists from all over the world. RAF’s headquarters are located at 710 Travis Street, Shreveport, Louisiana 71101. For more information, please visit www.rainforestartfoundation.org or call (318) 717-9111.
