October 28, 2014

American Art's latest exhibition, The Singing and the Silence: Birds in Contemporary Art, opens this Friday, October 31. The show includes 46 works by 12 artists, including David Beck, Rachel Berwick, Lorna Bieber, Barbara Bosworth, Joann Brennan, Petah Coyne, Walton Ford, Laurel Roth Hope, Paula McCartney, James Prosek, Fred Tomaselli, and Tom Uttech. We've created an online gallery with many of the works in the show.

Prosek's piece is 168 x 496 inches and took about a week to install. But we have also created a behind-the-scenes time-lapse video which compresses the process to about 2 minutes.

The exhibition, curated by Joanna Marsh, The James Dicke Curator of Contemporary Art here at the museum, will continue through February 22, 2015.
