Cleveland Museum of Natural History and MOCA Cleveland explore the link between bird watching and conceptual art at a two-part event this Saturday (July 12).
MOCA's latest exhibit, "A Bird in the Lens" features artist Jean Luc Mylayne, who spends hours, days, weeks, and even months gaining an intimate knowledge of the environment and birds that he photographs. Mylayne's conceptual practice bears formal similarities to bird watching, a popular and passionate activity for many Northeast Ohioans.
Andy Jones, Curator of Birds at the Natural History Museum will lead a one-hour introductory lesson on bird-watching along the trails at the Shaker Lakes Nature Center starting at 8:30 a.m. Afterwards, 'migrate' to MOCA where Assistant Curator Megan Lykins Reich leads a tour of the Mylayne exhibition.
Space is limited; Reservations required. RSVP by calling Megan Lykins Reich at 216.421.8671 ext. 26.
