Tour 'The Lost Bird Project' sculptures with artist Todd McGrain


Norman Bird Sanctuary invites the community for the unique opportunity to experience the world-renowned “Lost Bird Project” sculptures accompanied by artist Todd McGrain at Artists in Paradise on Saturday, July 20.

The five bronze sculptures, each memorializing an extinct North American bird, arrived at Norman Bird Sanctuary last September as part of the organization’s pilot artist residency featuring sculptor and documentary filmmaker Todd McGrain and several other artists. McGrain will return to the sanctuary to engage tour groups with the fascinating details of each sculpture and encourage guests to learn from their stories and conservation efforts. Following the tours, guests will have the opportunity to fold origami birds as souvenirs and enjoy complimentary wood-fired pizza and signature cocktails overlooking the ocean and Norman Bird Sanctuary’s rolling fields filled with more than 300 nest boxes.
