Nicolas Holiber, Nicolas Holiber: Birds on Broadway, the Audubon Sculpture Project
May 17, 2019 to January 31, 2020
Dante Park and Broadway Malls from 64th Street to 157th Street
Nicolas Holiber: Birds on Broadway, the Audubon Sculpture Project features ten oversized sculptures of New York City birds that are in danger of extinction due to climate change, displayed along the Broadway malls, a tree-lined greenway between 64th and 157th Streets in Manhattan. Each sculpture is made entirely out of reclaimed, untreated lumber, allowing for the city’s natural forces to affect it and highlight the environmental challenges faced by each species. Holiber gives meaning to materials that had no use is amplified when paired with the exhibition’s alarming message about climate change. The birds in this exhibition were chosen from the National Audubon Society’s 2014 Birds and Climate Change Report. From among the 145 threatened species that reside in or migrate through New York, Holiber decided to showcase the American bittern, brant, common goldeneye, double-crested cormorant, hooded merganser, peregrine falcon, red-necked grebe, scarlet tanager, snowy owl, and wood duck.
