Cranes and Conversations
Jill Metcoff and Diane Farris
October, 2008 – January, 2009

The Notebaert Nature Museum
2430 N. Cannon Drive
Chicago, IL 60614

We are photographers and friends who recently reconnected and discovered that our homes in Wisconsin and Florida have an unexpected and powerful connection: we dwell at the opposite ends of a Sandhill crane migration route. The cranes have become an important presence in each of our lives and photographic work. Our collaboration began in 2003 with photographic “migrations”, visiting and studying the connections between “home” and “away” for both the cranes and ourselves. This is the shape of our project: the particularity of place, Wisconsin and Florida, and the deep connection of each to the whole.

“Heating Up” features a group of concerned artists who are responding to environmental challenges with creative and practical applications that educate and engage the public. The variety of their artworks shapes the cultural discourse by filtering information through their creators’ imaginations, transforming the generic or obscure into the tangible and relevant. The goal of “Heating Up” is to produce both dialog and a guide for active participation on behalf of protecting life on this amazing planet.
