Event Description:

Welcome to Bird Land:Michele L'Heureux
With artist/collaborator Helen Popinchalk

September 4 – October 13, 2018

We have a lot in common with birds: we both build elaborate nests, travel long distances, communicate with melodious complexity, and demonstrate incredible resilience and fragility. Birds are a barometer of how well humans are doing on this planet. Their survival is inextricably linked to our behavior, and our survival is surprisingly linked to their ability to thrive.

Welcome to Bird Land draws inspiration from birds and the human enterprises of bird appreciation and birdwatching. Working with artist/collaborator Helen Popinchalk, L’Heureux explores how an encounter with one bird—a “spark bird”—can inspire a lifetime of admiration and wonder. The exhibition, which includes an interactive bird blind, collage, costumes, prints, photography, and works of art from the Lamont Gallery collection, is an immersive ode to birds.


Lamont Gallery programs are supported in part by the Michael C. Rockefeller ’56 Visiting Artists Fund.
