BIRD SHOW is migrating on to make way for Wonder Woman.
BIRD SHOW documents the ways humans & birds notice, help, and threaten each other.
Taxonified incorrectly as science fair, fairly as art gallery, but most specifically as museum exhibition, BIRD SHOW looks at humans watching birds, and the birds staring back.

BIRD SHOW runs through June 5, 2022.
Reliquaries typically hold the ostensible bones of dead saints. We hold the bones of Old New York.
We’ve been collecting them since 2002, when we started in an apartment window at Grand & Havemeyer.
In 2005 we moved to our present storefront home on Metropolitan Avenue, with beloved yellow awning painted by I.C.Y..
We had an interesting 2021.
