BIRD X BIRD 2010
Saturday, February 6, 2010 6-9PM
FEATURING WORK BY 130 ARTISTS IN ALL MEDIA
to benefit Audubon Center of the North Woods & Eloise Butler Wildlife Garden and Bird Sanctuary and BxB 2010
Last year I stumbled upon an article for an annual avian art exhibition called BirdxBird in Minneapolis. I am excited to say that I am on the 2010 roster. What is BirdxBird? Cynde Randall, artistic director for the exhibition, says it best in her “scoop” for the participating artists.
“So here’s how it works: about 120 of us make some beautiful work and once a year we install a big show and hold an auction to benefit the birds. The money that we raise goes to support critical habitat and environmental programming at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden in Minneapolis and Audubon Center of the North Woods in Sandstone Minnesota.”
The artwork produced for this exhibition is in response to data collected about avian species. Since 2002, BirdxBird has installed the work of painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, and multi-media artists for a one night exhibition and auction. For details on this event visit www.birdxbird.org. If you just so happen to find yourself in NE Minneapolis on Feb. 6th, swing by Northrup King Gallery 320!
