What happens when you mix art, playfulness, and insights from birds? Creativity influenced by feather color and pattern, frills and function! From bower birds to city pigeons, feathers come in thousands of sizes and colors, fantastic shapes, in different seasons, and for many reasons. Which of these emerge in your art?
The Birds of Vermont Museum’s 2022 art show is looking for works inspired by birds and their feathers. Will this be in illustration, interior decor, fashion and apparel, paintings, fabric arts, architectural design? Will we hear it in music or stories or poems? Will your work be inspired by one feather, a bird’s full plumage, a flock’s flight behavior? Will people know from your work which bird inspired you? Let birds’ colors, feather design, building skills, flight patterns, and more carry you to new spaces of creation.
The art show runs from May to October at the Birds of Vermont Museum. We have both indoor and outdoor (unprotected) spaces. In addition to walls, we have shelves for smaller three-dimensional pieces, room outdoors for weather-impervious works, and some ceiling area. You are welcome to visit to consider the potential.
