Artist Tatiana Arocha has launched a migration of tropical birds into the neighborhood around the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Join Arocha on a guided walking tour and “bird watch” revealing different species of birds hailing from Colombia. Perching and peering out from within the natural and urban environment, the birds are actually original illustrations with gold paint details, constructed from laser cut MDF and wheat-pasted. Learn more about the process and the politics of climate change that inspired the installation and go behind-the-scenes for an artist studio visit.
The tour starts and ends at BLDG 92 and lasts approximately 90 minutes.
