Birdland and the Anthropocene Exhibition and Programs

At the Peale and throughout the city, curated by Baker award winner Lynne Parks. The artists in the show offer creative solutions for mitigating human impact on the natural environment of the city, and bird populations in particular: for example by decorating windows and controlling light so that migrating flocks don’t run into glass in buildings.
