Event Description

They occupy our forests, fields, parks, beaches, farms, backyards and even our homes. But many New Jerseyans remain largely unaware of the profound natural and cultural significance of these ubiquitous avian creatures. This exhibition brings together nearly 200 rarely-seen artifacts to explore the status of our fine feathered friends as ecological mainstay and their historical role as a design-inspiring force, or muse, for New Jersey craftspeople. Visitor can also create a bird button to take home.

A virtual version of this exhibit and short video stories about birds are available on the Museum's website under the Virtual Programs tab. The exhibition will remain on view through the end of 2021.
