Birds of a Feather Closing Celebration

Saturday, February 15, 2020 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Birds of a Feather Closing Celebration

Location: Bemis Center | 724 S. 12th Street
Description: Join us for a community-wide celebration of our shared love of nature and birds! From suburbs to farmlands to the heart of our city, birds dwell with us. Art, literature, and music also remind us that birds and humans have been companions since time immemorial. Birds’ flight, feathers, and songs have always fascinated us. Let’s celebrate them and the closing of our two exhibitions.

You are invited to participate by sharing your favorite text, composition, or song about birds. This can take many forms: a reading, a recitation, a performance. You can draw on a famous or infamous text. You can also perform a new text or composition you’ve written for the occasion. Inspire us! Come alone or perform with your family or friends.

The day will start with the Omaha Public Library’s popular Out & About Storytime and will close with a special reading by Matt Mason, Nebraska State Poet. Sign up to join them and be a part of this exciting event!

Free and open to all. RSVP
Sign up to participate by February 12:
