Owls of Marin

Contrary to what some people say, trends transcend clothing and bleed into other facets of life. Remember when pomegranates were the hot fruit and everyone was drinking those Pom juices? How often do you see those now? Today it’s all about cold pressed vegetables juices. But beyond clothes and food, there is always an animal (well, it’s likeness) being exploited for profits. As far as I can tell it seems like cats are still reigning supreme — as their image plastered on leggings and calendars, alike — but before cats, it was all about owls. Between 2008 and 2012, stores like Target, Urban Outfitters and Forever21 were basically nationwide owl shrines and if you were trying to show your thoughtfulness and individuality, the owl tattoo was definitely the ink de jour. It’s not surprising — they are majestic! So come and spend an evening with local owls, learn about their habitats and find out why the true facts about these creatures are even more fascinating than the myths this Friday at the Marin Art & Garden Center.
