Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) for an exclusive event at the Ohana Floor of the Salesforce Tower! We will celebrate the nature-inspired art of incredible local artists and writers Jane Kim and Thayer Walker (aka Ink Dwell) as well as Obi Kaufmann (aka Coyote Thunder). Enjoy the most spectacular view you can get in the city, live music, great food, drinks, and beautiful exhibits of nature-inspired art. You'll have a chance to meet the artists themselves as well as buy signed copies of their books The Wall of Birds and the State of Water.

This will be a fun, casual party atmosphere and a great way to meet other people who care about protecting land on the SF Peninsula. You'll have a chance to learn more about the 77,000 acres of local lands that POST has protected, and be invited to become a supporter - if you are not already!

About the Artists:

Ink Dwell - Artist Jane Kim & Writer Thayer Walker

Founded in 2012 by artist Jane Kim and writer Thayer Walker, Ink Dwell studio creates art that explores the wonders of the natural world. Merging classical techniques of science illustration with modern fine art, they create public and private commissions, illustrations, exhibitions and much more. Ink Dwell makes everyday places special and enhances iconic locations with wondrous imagery.

To celebrate its centennial, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology commissioned Ink Dwell to paint a 2,500 square-foot mural titled “From So Simple a Beginning: Celebrating the Evolution and Diversity of Birds.” The mural depicts the 375 million year evolution of birds, from the 30-foot long Yutyrannus, ancestor of the first feathered dinosaur, to the tiny marvelous spatuletail hummingbird. All 270 species represented are painted to scale. Find them on instagram

Coyote Thunder - Artist and Writer Obi Kaufmann

Obi Kaufmann is the author of the popular and epic California best-sellers The California Field Atlas and The State of Water that are each filled with science, history, poetry, and art. Growing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, for Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred books to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet posting at @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media.
