Imaginations take flight, inspired by new breathtaking depictions of birds by some of the world’s most talented artists who push themselves to new heights, striving to be selected for the internationally renowned "Birds in Art" exhibition. Majestic yet fragile, amusing, and poignant, birds connect us with the natural world, heralding each dawn and signaling environmental shifts. Savor artistic interpretations and discover anew what inspires you. The 45th annual exhibition features avian wonders through all-new interpretations in original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years. "Birds in Art" opening weekend festivities are part of Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend. Since 1976, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has organized Birds in Art annually, seeking to present the best contemporary artistic interpretations of birds and related subject matter. Two- and three-dimensional artworks in all media other than crafts and photography are eligible. Approximately 100 works are selected by a three-person jury. Artwork for the annual "Birds in Art" exhibition is selected in May and opens to the public on the first Saturday following Labor Day.
