Art Exhibit: On the Wing
Ann Arbor, MI 48105 United States + Google Map
August 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 12, 2018
After years of artistically exploring the human condition, Astrid Monique Padilla has retrained her creative lens on another species to ask “What are the visual narratives underlying the Aves condition?”. In the arts, birds are often decorative–portrayed as mystical, mythological, and anthropomorphized– often considered only in relation to people. In “On The Wing: Michigan’s local and migratory birds” Astrid’s drawings and paintings begin her investigation into the wonder of local birds as autonomous beings, neighbors and travelers, worthy of respect and consideration in their own right. This work was made possible thanks to collaborations with many of Ann Arbor’s local ornithologists, birding enthusiasts, The Washtenaw Audubon Society, and The University of Michigan Zoological collection. On display from June 2 – August 12 at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
