About the program
Mana Contemporary has been a nesting site for Peregrine Falcons since 2000. The population of once-endangered falcons throughout Illinois is overseen by Mary Hennen of the Field Museum’s Chicago Peregrine Program. Through nest site monitoring, research and public education, the program works to better understand these amazing creatures and help them thrive throughout Chicago and the greater Midwest.
Artist Regina Martinez has dedicated the site-specific sound work overhearings, in response to the Peregrines’ presence.
Join Mary and Regina for a casual lunch and conversation spanning themes of memory, sound, preservation and research. Lunch will be provided.
