Birds, Birds, Everywhere Birds!

By: Jane Weinke, curator of collections/registrar on October 23rd, 2013

Have you noticed bird imagery is everywhere? Just today I received an email featuring bird-themed bags designed by Kate Spade. In fact, an entire line of bags, belts, mittens, earmuffs, and jewelry, features owls.
That email reminded me how often I encounter images of birds. Certainly, I am surrounded by birds in many forms here at the Woodson Art Museum, but take notice when you are out and about.

I have compiled just few examples of how bird imagery serves to enhance our lives.

And not to be forgotten . . . food!

Avian themes also adorn items in kitchen cupboards.

There are blogs about birds

Parties themed around birds.

Certainly not to be forgotten is bird-themed art, the best of which can be seen in Birds in Art 2013 through November 10 at the Woodson Art Museum.
