Birds of a Feather / Copia y Pega

Members of the community answered the call to “Flip a bird” and share what they learn from watching birds! I formatted for printing, enhanced and collaged these photographs, drawings, and written observations. It was fun to make birdwatching in Chelsea even more flocking awesome!

Contributions were from: Sophy Tuttle, Danielle Jacques, Maria Servellon, Nate, Steph Marando-Blanck,Sergio, Eva Gonzales, Nikki Descoteaux, Michael Gasper, Khizra Syeda, Karla Collins Eck, Elizmary Marrero Bey, Lisa Santagate, Jenna A Feldman, Marianne Ramos, Frances Hamilton, Max Pro, Kyle Browne, and Bebe Muskopf. Painting support from Amanda Hill and technical support from Colorbox Industries.

This project was part of a larger series of wheatpaste and painted murals presented by Chelsea Prospers, the City of Chelsea’s downtown initiative for neighborhood vitality and public art, and supported by Award No.2017-AJ-BX-0004 awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Department of Justice.

I also worked with Chelsea Prospers to support artists and youth from the Chelsea Collaborative to create original work for this project. Check out the Copia y Pega page on the Chelsea Prospers website to learn more about all the projects!
