The Bateman Foundation and the Harmony Foundation of Canada are co-hosting a community exhibit entitled “Caribou: Phantoms of the Forest”.
This exhibit runs from May 14 – 24th and features work from Robert Bateman, Sandra Boynton, Adrian Baker, Bernard Schissel and Elke van Breemen.
Woodland caribou live deep in the forests, far from human society, so their story is not well known. Due to habitat loss from human impact, they are one of BC’s most endangered animals. Woodland caribou depend on large, unbroken areas of old-growth forest for food, calving and safety from predators. And healthy caribou herds are indicative of the ecological integrity of BC’s old-growth forests. Join us as we bring to light the plight of these majestic animals.
Bateman – Harmony Art Competition
Students in grades 4-12 are invited to submit original works of art that depict the plight of caribou, its causes and possible solutions. Entries will be divided into three categories – primary, middle and high school. Winning entries will be displayed in the exhibit (May 14-24th). First place prizes include a limited-edition Robert Bateman print, an annual membership to Bateman Foundation, with awards presented by Robert Bateman at the Gallery of Nature on May 14th. The deadline for submission is April 25th, 2020. Please share this invitation with your students as soon as possible and encourage their participation.
