CMA surely loves Twitter as much as the rest of us, but this exhibition spotlights not the social media instrument but the feathered creatures who make the old-fashioned kind of tweets. The show presents a huge and delightful array of avian-themed art, from Vik Muniz’s enormous Hummingbird, made of industrial scraps, to a collage of Patagonia-clad birds by Fred Tomaselli and a MetroCard mosaic of common city bird species by artist Nina Boesch—plus more traditional renderings of birds likes gouache artist Amy Jean Porter’s bird portraits. The works are meant to inspire kids to stop and look at nature, which smartphones can sometimes get in the way of. The show’s interactive aspects include bird call workshops taught by Audubon naturalists; on-site art workshops galore, with kids making everything from Egyptian bird hieroglyphs to cockatiel costumes and rolling penguin push toys; and an off-site bird scavenger hunt through the city on Columbus Day weekend, in which kids seek out a given number of birds across the city—whoever finds and tweets images of all them first wins a free CMA membership for a year. All ages.
