New Exhibition | Migration by Charlotte Bird

September 18 – January 9 | 704 Pier View Way

Artist Charlotte Bird is a San Diego and Alaska-based fiber artist fascinated by the cycles of life in nature. In particular, the plight of the Sandhill Crane, their annual migration from Alaska to California, Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico, their elaborate rituals and dances, and the challenges they face in an era of climate change and habitat destruction. She is troubled by observations that climate change is slowly and subtly changing the birds’ lives. The success of the sandhill crane rests on its ability to adapt to diverse habitats extending from the Arctic to the subtropics. The birds cannot adapt to nesting grounds flooded by melting permafrost or to flooded feeding-grounds
in Nebraska and California.

At a simple level, Migration introduces visitors to the wonder of America’s sandhill cranes; at a deeper level, to connect people with the challenges facing cranes and other natural wonders in an era of climate change and habitat destruction. The gallery will be installed with life-sized fabric cranes and grasses, and a cloud of small cranes will be installed through the stairwell into the gallery.

Tickets are $10 for General Admission and Free for OMA members.
