With the pandemic causing national and international artists to cancel their tours and with the continued restrictions on public gatherings, we regret to announce that we are canceling Arts & Lectures' live/in-person events scheduled for February-May 2021.

“On the heels of a United Nations report released [last year] that one million plant and animal species face extinction due to climate change, Vitale sees her work as a critical way to encourage the public to connect with wildlife.” Artnet.com

Award-winning National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale attests to the power of one individual to make a positive difference in the world. As a photojournalist, she has spent years covering wildlife conservation stories, producing work that illuminates the unsung heroes and communities working to protect our wildlife and find harmony in our natural world. Her coverage of Kenya’s first indigenous owned and run elephant sanctuary earned her World Press Photo recognition in 2018. National Geographic’s October 2019 cover story featured Vitale’s tender image of the last male northern white rhino and the heroic efforts of the local people to save a species. And in China, she was given unprecedented access – she even donned a panda suit to remain anonymous among giant pandas – to document the efforts to breed pandas and release them back into the wild, leading to her acclaimed book Panda Love. Hear Vitale’s awe-inspiring stories as she shares her images and adventures from a career spent “living the story.”
