In February 2021 the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning in Gwinnett County will feature an art show entitled “Three Billion” — representing the three billion North American birds that have been lost in the past 50 years, according to a recently released study in the journal Science. The causes for the loss of these birds, many of them familiar backyard birds, include habitat loss, overuse of pesticides, building strikes, and free roaming domestic cats.
“Three Billion” is a group show curated by Brickworks Gallery owner and artist, Laura W. Adams. The show will feature a small group of artists whose work has either delved in to the plight of birds, or whose work has celebrated nature and birds and their habitats. All of the artists chosen have shown a long and strong commitment to protecting wild birds and their habitat.
The exhibit will run February 6 to April 24, 2021.
