Spark! fueling a love of birds | 2023 community art show

The Birds of Vermont Museum has been hosting themed community art shows since 2014. Each winter, the staff develops a bird-related theme for the exhibit and posts a Call to Artists, inviting submissions in varied media. Our 2023 art show, Spark!, brings together well over 60 artists, photographers, and poets of all ages. Most artists are from Vermont.

Many birders—and artists—have a “spark” moment that fueled a lifelong love of birds and birding and took them in unexpected directions. What spark stories do you find in these stories, poems, and images? The museum hopes these works inspire you also to create connections with birds, birding, conservation, and other bird-friendly folks.

The show runs from May 1 to October 31 at the Birds of Vermont Museum in Huntington. The Museum is open Wednesdays – Sundays, from 10am to 4pm, during these months. There will be an informal reception/meet the artists on Thursday, July 27, at 3pm. The Museum is located at 900 Sherman Hollow Road in Huntington, Vermont.
