Put A Bird On It

June 3, 2023 - August 19, 2023

This community art project will be on display now through August 2023.

In the spring of 2023, Atlantic Center for the Arts invited the public to a series of free talks designed to create an awareness and appreciation of the environment through the study of birds and the Florida Wildlife Corridor. Southeast Volusia Audubon Society, Stetson University Water and Environmental Resilience Institute, Florida Native Plant Society and Canaveral National Seashore speakers informed audiences on these important topics. Community members from Beachside Nursing Home, NSB High School, the ACA Volunteer League, ACA’s homeschool art program, and NSB residents were invited to use colored pens to create a bird for inclusion in this kinetic art mobile. This artwork is on display at ACA Harris House from June-August 2023.

Free public events schedule:

  • April 4, 12-1 PM, ACA Harris House (214 S Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach)
