Moving Targets: An Exhibition of Extinction and Survival

Moving Targets: An Exhibition of Extinction and Survival by artists Steffi Domike and Ann T. Rosenthal with Ruth Fauman-Fichman is returning to Pittsburgh August 29 - October 1, 2015 at Christine Frechard Gallery, 5871 Forbes Ave. PGH, 15217.

After the artists joined Project Passenger Pigeon to commemorate the 2014 centenary of the extinction of the species, they realized that this historical period held particular significance for their own families: The disappearance of the North American passenger pigeon roughly coincided with the arrivals of their forbears to the continent. 

Join the artists and authors for the exhibition opening and catalog release for Moving Targets, on Saturday August 29, 5-9 pm which will include new works drawing on the artists' three-year research and creative process. 

Additional Artists' Talk with Catalog Authors will take place Sunday, September 20, 4-5 pm.
