Item Description

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is now Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. But with her unyielding patience and characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures, and she managed to open a window into their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated and remains so to this day. Today, Jane’s work revolves around inspiring action on behalf of endangered species, particularly chimpanzees, and encouraging people to do their part to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment we all share. The Jane Goodall Institute works to protect the famous chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania, but recognizes this cannot be accomplished without a comprehensive approach that addresses the needs of local people who are critical to chimpanzee survival. Our community-centered conservation programs in Africa include sustainable development projects that engage local people as true partners. These programs began around Gombe in 1994, but they have since been replicated in other parts of the continent. Likewise, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, which Jane started with a group of Tanzania students in 1991, is today the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program for young people from preschool through university with nearly 150,000 members in more than 130 countries.

About the Mask Artist:  Marlene Feinholz was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. Her mother was a painter, her grandfather a sculptor and her stepfather was a writer. They all set examples of creativitiy around her and encouraged her at a young age to draw. Marlene always knew that painting was her passion. Marlene has received numerous awards in Connecticut and Colorado and her work is in private collections throughout the United States. Her painting of Broadmoor Hotel hangs in the CEO's office on the first floor of the hotel and one of her latest commissioned paintings hangs on the first floor of the new St. Joseph’s Hospital on 19th & Downing St. in Denver just as you enter their café.  "I am drawn to the varied architecture in the city with its dark shadows, bright lights, details and lean lines. I especially like the mood in an early Sunday morning as I like to maintain an air of mystery within my work. I enjoy painting outdoors as well as in my studio. They both offer possibilities that seem endless."
