The goal of this exhibition is to create a greater awareness and appreciation for birds while fostering the development of young artists and sharing their work with the public.
The Taking Flight contest is open to young artists age 4 to 18 of all skill levels. The exhibition of winners will be displayed at MABA in the fall and/or winter.
We'll be announcing the young artists whose works were accepted for last year's Taking Flight exhibition by February 7, 2020. The exhibition of 2019 winners will run from approximately March–July 2020.
Stay tuned for the big announcement and more details!
