Bell Museum: Seeing Birds and Birds Through Dakota Eyes Exhibit and Talk Integrates Art and Science

Feb 27, 2022 | art/design

Seeing Birds

Birds have always captured the human imagination. They are fantastically beautiful, occurring in a huge variety of colors and forms. They can fly high in the air and dive deep in the water, representing a freedom that inspires us. Through art, science, and careful observation, we have been able to probe some of the mysteries of birds. Still, they elude our grasp.

The exhibition Seeing Birds integrates art, science, and nature to ignite curiosity and wonder about the beauty and biology of birds, engaging visitors in an exploration of birds, their environments, and their evolution. It focuses on critical research on birds from the University of Minnesota, reviewing advances in our understanding of birds made through careful observation of their behavior and habitat and revealing current research that advances knowledge of our changing world.

The Bell Museum provides a window into the world of research at the University of Minnesota and the role and impact of collections-based research on our world. Seeing Birds highlights the ways that people learn from and connect with nature and the environment with birds as an entry point, while also recognizing the Bell Museum’s past and present contributions to the field of ornithological research, and to habitat and bird conservation efforts.
