“Birds in Books” Sustainability Project Dedication

Students from “Birds in Books” will dedicate a collaborative project—a birdbath, a contemplative bench, and a birdfeeder, in the garden patio of a new dementia unit at The Highlands , 101 Highland Avenue, Providence on Thursday, May 30, at 4:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.

Majors from Furniture, Industrial Design, and Ceramics will be sharing their efforts–and their materials, mostly recycled, “sustainable” remnants left by the storms of this academic year’s seasons: the hurricanes and blizzards of 2012–2013. Representatives of the “pigeon club” and of the “divest” group will speak about the work and its sources in their studio and classroom.
