The Last Senior Thesis Exhibit at the Corcoran

Unfriendly Skies: Birds, Buildings, and Collision will be presented at Goucher College’s Silber Art Gallery in the Athenaeum from Tuesday, March 31, to Sunday, May 3, 2015. This exhibit, which is free and open to the public, can be viewed Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In this exhibit, 17 artists investigate bird deaths in Baltimore. The artists explore elements such as light pollution and building collisions that kill as many as 1.3 billion birds each year in North America. The efforts of Lights Out Baltimore and related conservation programs provide the inspiration for their work.

Featuring works by Rose Anderson, Sandy Anderson, Miranda Brandon, Stephanie Garmey, Aaron Heinsman, Brian Henry, Bonnie Crawford Kotula, Ursula Marcum, Lisa Moren, Tim Nohe, Jenny O’Grady, Lynne Parks, Ben Piwowar, Nicole Shiflet, Nick Clifford Simko, Chris Siron, and Van Wensil.
