Jane Ingram Allen

"Bird Watching 6" Westerly, RI June 7 - October 14, 1998

Gazebo in Wilcox Park, Westerly, RI

Some of Jane's birds also migrated to Wilcox Park in Westerly, Rhode Island. This installation called "Bird Watching 6" also in partnership with Convergence will be on view from June 7 - October 14, in this city park behind the Westerly Public Library. About 50 of Jane's birds were installed throughout the park in trees and on the roof of a pavillion in this beautiful "Victorian strolling park" with many old and stately trees. One of the most interesting trees is an unusual speciment which makes a huge canopy cover that comes down to the ground, and children regularly use this space for play. Inside this space high up in the tree, Jane installed her sculpture of an owl.

Visitors are encouraged by this installation to journey through the park keeping a lookout for Jane's birds in the trees, making this a true bird watching experience! A site map indicating where the birds are placed in the park and information about the installation is available at the park. There will be a reception for the artist on July 1 at the park. Jane's installation will remain on view throughout the summer season which ends after Columbus Day in October.
