Meet New York City based graphic designer, animal rights activist, and National Geographic Emerging Explorer ASHERJAY at a casual meet-n-greet at 10AM. Hear about her new exhibition Tusk, Horn, Flesh & Bone and her animal conservation work.
Later, from 6-9PM, party at a masquerade ball at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Create your own endangered species mask with Asher or bring your own. Explore her new exhibit “Tusk, Horn, Flesh & Bone” while Nomadic Events and DJ Jefe deliver a lively evening with free food by the Rising Sage Café and a cash bar.
At 7:30 PM Asher Jay will speak briefly about her awareness-raising designs which convey a strong message about the destructive nature of the illegal ivory trade and animal trafficking. As wildlife art, her designs are most closely related to something like Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species portfolio, which presents a clear social message in a visually arresting manner. And stick around, you won’t want to miss the special moment of the party!
