Avian Celebrations

Birds make us happy. We admire their beauty and diversity and envy their ability to soar and fly. Acute observers, artists strive to capture the essence of of their subjects and interpret birdlife through intense study and observation, photography, and sketching, often spending hours in the field before taking to the studio. Celebrating avian life and the artists who share their talents, this exhibition of artwork from the Museum’s collection focuses on five themes:

  • Day at the Beach
  • Ducking Out
  • Enchanted Evening
  • Follow the Line
  • In the Pink
