My name is Dan Boudreau and I’m the youth education coordinator for Mass Audubon’s Museum of American Bird Art in Massachusetts. Each year, we host a juried youth bird art exhibition for children ages 4-18 called Taking Flight. We receive submissions from all over the United States and have even had a few international entries. This is our fifth year hosting the exhibit, and we hope to have even broader participation. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum of American Bird Art and we hope it will foster the next generation of artists who love birds and wildlife. I’m reaching out to spread the word!


If you know of any young artists who might be interested in submitting, I’d really appreciate it if you could pass this information along to them and share it with your contacts. This year’s theme is “Your favorite bird, or what birds mean to you,” and most non-digital mediums are allowed. We've extended our deadline and will be taking submissions until July 15th 2020. I’ve attached a PDF flyer (pun intended!), or you can check out our website and Facebook event for more information. Please note that the flyer still lists June 15th as the end of the submission period; I'm still waiting to receive an updated version of the flyer.


Please let me know if you have any questions!
