Wildlife Art: The Art of Conservation

The Institute for the Study of Human-Animal Relations (ISHAR), and the fine arts/studio art program, will host a community-wide lecture by Edward Spera on Thursday (February 10) at 7:30 p.m. in Regis South.  The talk and slideshow are free and open to the public.

Spera is renowned for his ability to create wildlife images of exquisite beauty and insightful detail.  He works around the world with local people, and he uses his skills to galvanize art patrons to support wildlife conservation efforts.  This will be a unique opportunity to meet someone who works effectively at the forefront of the conservation movement.

The men’s basketball team hosts a pair of crucial Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference contests this weekend with both Marist and St. Peter’s visiting Western New York on Super Bowl weekend.

Friday’s (February 4) game versus Marist begins at 7 p.m.  The Red Foxes defeated the Griffs in December.  The game is presented by both Hyatt Regency Buffalo and Delta Sonic with the Hyatt providing free hot chocolate to all fans, with all of the trimmings.  A weekend stay at the Hyatt will also be given away.

Super Bowl Sunday’s (February 6) game tips-off at 2 p.m.  St. Peter’s is the hottest team in the MAAC and their 8-3 conference record places them solidly in second place.  The Griffs are also looking to avenge another early season defeat.  Hart Hotels will provide a couple of contest prizes during Sunday’s contest.
