The American Art Museum’s latest exhibition, The Singing and the Silence: Birds in Contemporary Art, opens Friday, October 31. The exhibition examines man’s relationship with birds and the natural world through the worlks of 12 contemporary 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. The online gallery features many of the works in the show.
The opening of the exhibition, curated by Joanna Marsh, The James Dicke Curator of Contemporary Art, dovetails with two significant environmental anniversaries—the extinction of the passenger pigeon in 1914 and the establishment of the Wilderness Act in 1964. It will continue at the American Art through February 22, 2015.
