"Put a Bird on It"

"Put a Bird on It" opens with an artist reception and open studio from 6 to 10 p.m. 2 March in the Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis.

Fans of Portlandia will recognize the title of this show from the skit of the same name that pokes fun at hipster-crafters who will seemingly put a bird on just about anything.

With the help of over 75 artists, the Harrison Center will indeed be "putting a bird on it" as four of our exhibit spaces combine to form a giant art aviary. Click here for a list of participating artists. Their work hangs through 30 March.

Also that night:

In the City Gallery - new work by Erin Drew.

Representatives will be on hand with information about great urban Indy neighborhoods including Watson McCord, home of the Watson Bird Sanctuary.

Throughout the building, there'll be 23 HCA artist open studios, and, in the gym, demonstrations by Rock Steady Boxing, a program designed to improve the quality of life for people battling Parkinson's disease through non-contact, boxing training.

"Awaken Your Senses" book signing with author, Beth Booram.

At VSA Indiana : "Celebrating Community" with clay and 2D work made by Community Arts Class students and Urban Artisans. Show hangs through 28 March.

It's all a part of First Friday (of course) sponsored by IDADA (Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association).
