New Art Project on Campus: Poetry Birdhouses, Building Community

Take a walk and check out five amazing Poetry Birdhouses by local artists and poets in our LBCC Albany campus courtyard! The poetry birdhouses have been transformed with artistic approaches of paint, ceramics, metal or collage. The houses all have poems attached on the inside of the door and a journal for viewers to write poems or comments - or draw. Artists: Rachel Urista, Robert Dudenhoefer, Kerry McFall, Deian Moore, Alexis Spakoski. Poets: Carol Ann Lantz, J.D. Mackenzie, Linda Gelbrich, Ann Staley, Marjorie Power

The Poetry Birdhouse, Building Community project was made possible by the LBCC Arts & Aesthetics Team (AART) with generous support from the Linn County Cultural Trust.
