A Discussion with Regina Martinez and Mary Hennen
Presented by the Monira Foundation and Experimental Sound Studio
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 conversation followed by a community lunch, spanning themes of memory, sound, preservation and research.
