  John A. Ruthven is a naturalist, author, lecturer, and internationally acknowledged master of wildlife art, often called the “20th Century Audubon.” In 1974, he led the effort to save the last of the Cincinnati Zoo'’s 19th century bird pagodas – the one where Martha, the last of the passenger pigeons, had once lived. Mr. Ruthven is the final speaker in the Cincinnati Zoo’'s Barrows Lecture Series this year (the event is sold out). The Zoo’'s Thane Maynard talks with John Ruthven, who is the recipient of the 2014 Cincinnati Zoo Wildlife Conservation Award.

In January of this year, Thane Maynard spoke to Joel Greenburg, author of A Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction. You can hear that interview by clicking here: Thane and Joel Greenburg

Dick Waller is a familiar face and name around the Cincinnati music community. He was the principal clarinetist for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for many years, and during that time, he founded the Linton Chamber Music Series. But what many did not know was that, starting in 1974, he began painting as a stress reliever from his work with the symphony. Now, in retirement, he’s decided to begin exhibiting his paintings. Sunday afternoon will be the opening of Music at an Exhibition, showcasing over 100 of his works, at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Dick Waller is in our studio with Mark Perzel to talk about his passion for painting and why he is now ready to share them with the rest of the community.

As the publisher tells Barbara Gray, Theodore Geisel not only had his beloved children’s books, he was a surrealist painter of a collection now referred to as “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.” This book includes highlights of those works that Geisel referred to as his Midnight Collection, which he mostly kept to himself to avoid criticism, but wanted released after his death.
