Becorns: A Woodland World of Wonder
Exhibit & Sale by David Bird
Exhibit extended by popular demand thru December 31
David Bird is a photographer based in Danielson, CT who got his start in character design by working for Lego in Denmark. He makes characters out of acorns, sticks, and whatever else he finds in the back yard, and then he photographs them in the wild with real animals. Most of these photos are the result of a careful study of animal behavior, patience, and a lot of birdseed. You can view his photography and toy designs at davidmbird.com or follow him on Instagram at @davidmbird. Free admission.
