The 2024 art show, The Power of Perspective: shifting points of view opened May 1 and runs through October 31.

Visit, and find your own new idea, question, or experience.  Our call to artists for this year’s art show asked,

Consider the scope of an eagle’s eye—the narrow view of a gleaning warbler—the shadowed sight of a loon underwater. We may see birds above us from the ground, or below us from a plane. We may use a camera lens to record from afar, or a magnifier and lamps to perceive what is normally unknown. How does time influence your perspective? What if we “zoom out” from one bird to a species, to an ecosystem, to a planet? What if we “zoom in” to one bird to its wing, to a feather, to a gene?

How does your art reveal a point of view?  …How might a change in perspective alter people’s understanding of the lives and needs of the birds who share our world?

Discover how artists, poets, sculptors, photographers and others have answered. The full list of creators is in our blog post, Power of Perspective.
