Mega Fauna: Endangered in Africa
Join us for an art exhibition of artwork by Los Angeles area artists and college students inspired by the big mammals and wildlife of East Africa.
Professor Linda Lyke’s Advanced Printmaking Class and Photo-processes in Printmaking are featured in the show as well as students from CSU Northridge, CSU Long Beach, Loyola Marymount University, Otis College of Art and Design, LA City College and Azusa Pacific University.
Occidental students have silkscreened t-shirts and made prints for sale during the opening reception to support Big Life Foundation and LEWA Wildlife Conservancy. Big Life employs hundreds of Maasai rangers to protect one of the greatest populations of elephants left in Kenya and Tanzania from poaching and works with local communities to protect nature for the benefit of all.

The exhibition will open on Thursday, April 21 from 5-9 pm in Weingart Galleries and continues through May 12, 2016.
