Hover: Hummingbirds in the United States is on display at the Tempe Public Library. The interactive ebook is installed on an iPad, and it is ready to be explored. Look for slow motion hummingbird flight, beautiful colors, and the wonder of a hummingbird egg hatching.
It’s a Wildlife
Hover is on display as part of an art exhibit in the Tempe Youth Library. The art show is titled “It’s a Wildlife”. The show features the work of April Howland, Maria Mahar, and Thomas Strich. April’s contribution to the show are her wonderfully bright and whimsical wildlife paintings. Maria and Tom’s contribution focuses on their work around hummingbirds in Arizona. Their work includes hummingbird-related materials to engage and inform viewers through photographs, drawings (coloring pages), and slow motion video.
“It’s a Wildlife” is on the lower level, at the main entrance to the Youth Library. Hover is in the open gallery area, available for any child or adult to enjoy. Look for the iPad case mounted on a low pedestal.
Hummingbird Coloring Pages for Adults and Children
As part of the show, Tom has provided free hummingbird coloring pages for adults and children. There are 5 designs – from simple to complex. The Library keeps copies available on the kiosk. Color pencils can be checked out at the Youth Desk. The original color photos are posted on our hummingbird blog.
“It’s a Wildlife” is up through October 11, 2017. Come by, see the art work, and take home some free hummingbird coloring pages!
Thank you to the City of Tempe Youth Library management and staff and the Gallery at Tempe Center for the Arts management and staff for making “It’s a Wildlife” possible. And thank you to April Howland for her delightful work.
