About the Exhibit
In this exhibit, 17 artists investigate bird deaths in Baltimore. The artists explore elements such as light pollution and building collisions that kill as many as 1.3 billion birds each year in North America. The efforts of Lights Out Baltimore and related conservation programs provide the inspiration for their work.
