Avian Avatars

The Garment District Alliance is aflutter over our latest public art exhibit, Avian Avatars. Designed by The Myth Makers, Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein, this installation features five colossal sculptures, each symbolizing a mythical bird, located on the Garment District Plazas between 36th and 41st streets. 

Crafted from maple saplings, wire ties and found objects, the sculptures stand from 18 to 26 feet tall, with each bird sharing a unique myth. Avian Avatars is meant to indicate transformation, encouraging the public to heed to the stories about current human impact on the changing natural world.

See the official website for more information about the sculptures, as well as a list of public programs featuring The Myth Makers.
