Event Description

In flight or at rest, birds have long fascinated artists. Often used as symbolic objects for particular virtues, families, or countries, birds in art can carry meaning far beyond their forms. From John Buck’s vibrant woodcut of the extinct dodo bird to Laurie Hogin’s fantastically feathered creations, Flight Pattern celebrates the great variety of avian art in the CRMA collection.
