Birds in Art

Birds in Art opening weekend at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum features extended hours and opportunities to meet participating artists. Majestic yet fragile, birds connect us with the natural world. Heralding each sunrise and gathering at dusk, these harbingers of seasonal and environmental change endlessly fascinate and inspire. For nearly half a century, this internationally renowned exhibition features work by some of the world’s most talented artists. Browse galleries to see fresh artistic takes on birds via original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the past three years. Since 1976, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has organized Birds in Art annually, seeking to present the best contemporary artistic interpretations of avian themes. Always free admission.


Special opening-weekend hours: Saturday, September 10, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, September 11, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Birds in Art is scheduled to remain on view through November.
