Each unique bronze bird mixes a full dose of humour into the pleasurable activity of bird watching.   The simple joy of these eighteen birds, ‘all dressed up’ in familiar garments and accessories, is their ability to awaken the imaginations of residents, staff, and guests through humour, connecting people of all ages together through story telling and conversation.

c.j. fleury has been active throughout the Ottawa art community as a sculptor, activist, performer, educator and facilitator of many socially engaged projects.  Her interdisciplinary practice explores forms, sites and methodologies of creative exchange and collaboration.
