Event description

Description

Science + Art happy hours are back! Enjoy a brief science presentation, art demonstration & creation, and inspiring community conversations. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

TUESDAY, February 11th, 6-8 pm
"Signals From Songbirds" with Dr. Melissa Hughes, Professor of Ornithology at the College of Charleston AND "Abstract Soundscapes" with local artist Marielena Martinez.

Rise early and you are rewarded with the melodies of songbirds. But why do they sing? Animal behaviorist and evolutionary biologist Dr. Melissa Hughes will share highlights from her research into the sounds of songbirds. What do these signals mean? How are they used? How do they vary? We will explore the diversity of bird songs to bring a new appreciation to our Carolina morning soundscapes. Marielena Martinez will then show us how to turn these soundscapes into abstract art, inspired by some of the work of Paul Klee. Through pen & ink we will turn sounds into patterns, and then add emotion and imagery with watercolors -- all while being inspired by early morning bird songs.

Audubon South Carolina will also be on hand to advise participants on native plantings and habitat to appreciate more birds in their own backyards, with native perennial seeds to take home. They will discuss their policy initiatives for the coming year and how participants can help advocate for birds. We hope you will join us for this exciting collaboration of science, art and community in action.

$15 LEARN, CREATE & TAKE HOME ORIGINAL ART. Students FREE and Educator discount. Great food and happy hour specials, including $1 off happy hour all event long and 10% evenings sales will be donated by Rutledge Cab Co. to help support more Community Science + Art!
