Imagine a grocery bill for a family of 15,000
At Audubon Nature Institute we are always stocking our kitchens with nutritious produce, grains and meats to feed more than 15,000 animals at the Zoo, Aquarium, Insectarium and Research Center. Our grocery bill is a bit larger than that of the average New Orleans household—more than $390,000 each year—so every $15 donation to Feed the Animals helps us provide delicious meals for everything from ants to zebras.

What is on the grocery list?
> Southern Sea Otters, Buck and Emma, consume 18 pounds of seafood each day.
> Butterflies at the Insectarium love fruit and snack on mangos and kiwis.
> Asian Elephants, Panya and Jean, each eat 160 pounds of food a day.

Help feed Audubon’s animals today
Make a donation that will give our butterflies a sweet treat, our sea otter a snack or our gorilla a Thanksgiving meal. Every banana, yam and crawfish makes a difference!

Audubon’s animals thank you!

Bill at The Embassy , Santa Monica CA 1999

I was first introduced to William Eggleston's photographs in 1979, only three years after his landmark exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. I was introduced to him not soon after this time. It was awkward and strange , that first meeting. We stood around the dining room table on Central Avenue in Memphis. Bill talked about music and played a few albums. We would meet a number of times over the ensuing years, sharing a meal, an afternoon , a look at some pictures or an exhibition. Bill was not widely celebrated,  or collected for that matter , in those days. However, over the last almost 30 years, his star has risen high! Its nice to see all the attention he is getting now with the sweeping retrospective which just opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Bill Eggleston is blessed , and we are blessed to have William Eggleston!
