Put A Bird On It Artist Reception and Open Studio Night at the Harrison Center, Friday, March 2, 6 To 10pm
I’ve three works in this show — a murder of crows, a box of chickens and my giant skin-on-frame cardinal. I can’t lie. It was pretty awesome to be named in the press release!
Fans of the show,Portlandia will recognize the title of this show from the skit of the same name that pokes fun at hipster-crafters who will seemingly put a bird on just about anything. On March 2, with the help of over 75(!) artists, the Harrison Center will indeed be “putting a bird on it” as four of our exhibit spaces combine to form a giant art aviary. Participating artists include Ryan Abegglen, Teri Barnett, Justin Cooper, Geoff Davis of 50 Little Birds, Kyle Herrington, Tasha Lewis, Kate Oberreich, Carolyn Springer and many more.
Also that night: In the City Gallery – new work by Erin Drew. Representatives will be on hand with information about great urban Indy neighborhoods including Mapleton-Fall Creek, home of the Watson Bird Sanctuary. Throughout the building, 23 HCA artist open studios. In the gym – demonstrations by Rock Steady Boxing, a program designed to improve the quality of life for people battling Parkinson’s disease through non-contact, boxing training.
The art hangs through March 31st.
