Auspicious Cranes: The Crane in Asian Art and Myth

Saturday, January 19
2:00pm-3:00pm

Now that the Sandhill Cranes have settled in for their winter sojourn in our fields, the Visitor Center offers a contemplative appreciation of these fascinating birds. Long-time Open Space volunteer and retired professor specializing in Asian culture, Joelle Collier, PhD, will discuss the symbolic importance of the crane in the Far East.

As a professor of film and theatre for 25 years, Joelle Collier, Ph.D., had a specialization in Chinese-language cinema. She served as Vice-Chair of the international Asian Cinema Studies Society from 2000-2010 and has published essays in film journals and anthologies. Since retirement, she has been an active Open Space volunteer.
