I have been invited to mount a solo installation at the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen, TX, in November 2017. There are several aspects about the museum’s location that excite me. McAllen borders Mexico on the Rio Grande. It also lies on the Avian Central Flyway Corridor. Both of these factors inspire me to create an installation that features 7 life-size sculptures of roseate spoonbills, and that considers both avian and human migration through the use of found materials and interactivity.
