"The Art of Migration"

 

The Art of Migration, a new book by Peggy Macnamara, animates the journey birds and insects embark on during migration in her vibrant watercolor illustrations. Macnamara is an adjunct associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and artist-in residence and associate of the Zoology Department at the Field Museum. She is also the author of Painting Wildlife in Watercolor, Illinois Insects and Spiders, and Architecture by Birds and Insects. She joins us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.
