Brooklyn Botanic Garden: For the Birds Benefit Auction 2022

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is proud to offer the opportunity to bid on over 15 unique works of art that have been featured in For the Birds. For the Birds is a multidisciplinary exhibition and program series inspired by the Garden’s resident birds, as well as “For the Birds: The Birdsong Project,” a multialbum set of original recordings celebrating birds by 200-plus artists, compiled by Randall Poster. For the Birds is centered around a Garden-wide outdoor exhibition of dozens of site-specific birdhouses created by artists of international renown. Each birdhouse provides an opportunity to learn more about birds and their habitats through the eyes of artists working with a variety of materials and points of view.

The pieces included in the auction have been donated to BBG by the artists, and funds raised will support the Garden’s ongoing commitment to equitable public access, care of BBG’s gardens and collections, and innovative environmental education for children and adults, with special support to New York City teachers and community greening initiatives.

Support Brooklyn Botanic Garden by bidding in our online auction featuring works by Walter Hood, Jimenez Lai, Kyle May, Amy Ritter, Suchi Reddy, and more. Bidding will take place exclusively on Artsy and will begin to close on Monday, September 27.
