A painting of chickens and pigeons

Saturday, May 18 | 1-4 pm | Free

Ever been birding? Put on your metaphorical binoculars and get going through the galleries at this Third Saturday for Families. Artists have painted and sculpted animals since art began, and birds are a favorite. We will go birding in the Museum, looking for all types of birds using a birding guide created by the Tracy Aviary. Learn about the birds in the UMFA collection and then create your own bird art in the classroom.

This event is in collaboration with the Tracy Aviary. Check out all of our upcoming Third Saturday for Families.
