Public art now on display in Seaport Village aims to raise awareness about the impact of illegal bird trafficking.
Birds Without Paradise (Pajaros sin Paraiso) was created by Oaxacan artist Manuel Molina with the assistance of volunteers and school children in both the United States and Mexico. Many life-size birds made of corn husks and wood take flight overhead, reminding us of the harm caused by illegal bird trafficking.
The freedom themed art, which has been displayed at various locations in both nations, strengthens cross-border cultural connections and is a delightful bond between diverse people.
These colorful birds will be flocking above Seaport Village, just west of the central fountain, through April!
