We have all seen at least one of the Madagascar movies portraying comical cartoon animals struggling for a home in the wild. However, this spring, a new movie titled “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar” will be released about the real fight for survival of lemurs in Madagascar. Spearheading the production of this movie, not to mention the entire conservation effort it represents, is Stony Brook anthropology professor Dr. Patricia Wright.
Stony Brook’s Staller Center for the Arts is celebrating its 25th anniversary of providing quality arts and entertainment for both the University and the surrounding Long Island community. Alan Inkles, the Director of the Staller Center, is the man who has made it all possible. Some of the artists to look forward to this season are Bill Cosby, Audra McDonald, Wynton Marsalis, The Salzburg Marionette Company and more.
