Winged Shadows: Life Among Birds

MSU will host the Winged Shadows: Life Among Birds exhibit during NOTSTOCK, on loan from the North Dakota Museum of Art. The exhibit will be in the Missouri Room on the third floor of the Student Center October 4 & 5 from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and October 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Minot State University campus.

Winged Shadows: Life Among Birds is the NDMOA’s seventh traveling exhibition through its Rural Arts Initiative program. We who live in the woodlands; the moraine ridges, washes and sloughs of the Northern Plains; or along the Central Flyway—that migration route from the Arctic to South America—live among birds. Collected in this exhibition are dozens of ways of looking at birds through paintings, photographs, prints, video, and electronic media by artists including Barbara Bosworth, Terry Evans, Kenojuak (Ashevak), David Krueger, Victoria Neel, Guido van der Werve, Rebecca Norris Webb, and others. The artists, from the United States, Canada, and Europe, have created works of art that remind the viewer of the sheer beauty of birds and the various relationship that exist between them and humans.

Ready-made lesson plans for Winged Shadows are available for educators. Don't miss the opportunity to see this exhibit in person!
