Brooklyn Botanical Garden: ‘Opening of For the Birds’ | New in NYC

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK– On Saturday, June 11, celebrate with the Brooklyn Botanical Garden the opening of ‘For the Birds’, an exhibition and program series presented in partnership with acclaimed music supervisor Randall Poster.

‘For the Birds’ is a multidisciplinary exhibition and program series, which explores the connections between birds and plants through both scientific and artistic lenses, inspired by the Garden’s resident birds, as well as “For the Birds: The Birdsong Project,” a multi -album set of original recordings celebrating birds by 200-plus artists, compiled by Randall Poster.

For the Birds is centered around a Garden-wide outdoor exhibition of dozens of site-specific birdhouses created by artists of internationally renown. Each birdhouse provides an opportunity to learn more about birds and their habitats through the eyes of artists working with a variety of materials and points of view.
