| NEW A new installation at Green Library's East Portal (opening toward Coupa Cafe and Meyer Green) features nine paintings and drawings of campus birds by Darryl Wheye. The installation is dedicated to Stanford President emeritus Donald Kennedy "to honor his support of Stanford and the natural world". Captions are posted online.
NEW In a December 2015 paper Prof. Paul Ehrlich and Darryl Wheye ask: Do some marks on butterfly wings mimic caterpillars? If they do, what effect might this form of mimicry have on birds and other predators?
Hummingbird Garden planted at Green Library in association with the Art at Exits exhibit (below). The garden is designed to provide year-round nectar for the three species of hummingbirds seen on campus. It is located at the East portal, near Coupa Cafe.
Art at Exits: Seeing Stanford Species The exhibit--and its web coverage--begins with ten works by Audubon featuring birds found on Stanford's main campus. The Audubons are placed near building exits opening toward areas the featured birds frequent. Captions provide a science lens. More Audubons are coming.
