Mass migrations take place all over the world, yet when someone mentions mass migration, we are more likely to imagine huge herds of wildebeests and zebra on the plains of Africa than the visitors who come to our own backyards, ponds, rivers, forests and beaches right here in New England. You don’t have to go on a safari halfway around the globe to encounter a migratory species, sometimes you simply have to step out into your own yard.
This themed art exhibit is open to all GNSI-NE members and any national GNSI member who resides in New England (you do not have to be a New England Chapter member to exhibit). Any traditional media or digital illustrations are welcome. The works do not have to be strictly scientific in nature, they can be more fine art if you desire, so long as they feature a migratory species that meets the theme criteria.
Mass Migrations Theme
This themed art exhibit is focusing on various species who travel either to or through New England on their annual migratory paths. This theme will bring awareness and attention to the many varied species who visit New England all year round, where they come from, where they go and why.
