The Great Winter Crow Show Opening Reception
The Great Winter Crow Show at the Spirit Room, held in alternate years, is a noncompetitive festive exhibition. It is intended to be a mad combining of energies and visual ingredients. The theme is the crow, the blackbird, and all their marvelous and malevolent associations.
The crows and ravens keep us company in the wintertime and continue to remind us with their squawks and pacing that they keep a close eye on our behaviors and movements. Crows are known to play catch with twigs, to slide down snowy hills on their backs head-first, to soar and dive for entertainment, to carry shiny objects back to their nests for contemplation, and to collect hallucinogenic seeds in the fall, saving them to bring color to winter-white boredom. It gets slow in the winter for people too, a good reason to celebrate “the uncanny crow.”
The Reverend Henry Ward Beecher said in the mid 1880s, “If men had wings and bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to match the crow.” This is a chance to put on your thinking cap and share your talents and good humor by entering the Great Winter Crow Show.
Join us at the reception for drinks, snacks, and a good time.
