The Arroyo Arts Collective presents For the Birds, a month long installation project on the grounds of the Audubon Center at Debs Park. For the Birds will treat visitors to a rare glimpse of an urban wildlife sanctuary, set in a Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood that has long been a haven for artists. This collaboration between two sets of “rare birds” allows a time for quiet reflection on the fragile ecosystems that surround both. Exploring a wide range of themes related to local birds, artists will construct temporary installations in the parkland of the Center, a haven for nearly 140 bird species. Visitors will enjoy a unique blend of art and nature as they follow trail maps to the installation sites. A gallery show of bird related artwork by Arroyo Arts Collective members will be exhibited inside the Center and auctioned to benefit the Audubon Center at the closing reception on May 7, from 2 to 5 p.m., with music by the band, Artichoke. In addition to the Opening and Closing Receptions, For the Birds features three Saturday activities for families: Paper Bag Puppet Making, on April 16, from 2 to 4 p.m., a bilingual Bird walk on April 23, at 9 a.m. and Conservation and Conversations, featuring conversations with the artists and an opportunity to help with habitat restoration in the park, on April 30 at 10 a.m. The Audubon Center is located at 4700 North Griffin Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90031. Information at or by voice mail at 323-850-8566. This event is free and open to the public.
