Mercer County - Trenton - Fine Feathered Friends: Birds as Mainstay and Muse

Fine Feathered Friends: Birds as Mainstay and Muse
Opening January 4, 2020

They occupy our forests, fields, parks, beaches, farms, backyards and even our homes. Indeed, birds are everywhere. But many New Jerseyans remain largely unaware of the profound natural and cultural significance of these ubiquitous avian creatures.

This exhibition brings together a wide assortment of artifacts and specimens to explore two concepts about our fine feathered friends – their status as an important ecological mainstay and their historical role as a design-inspiring force – or muse – for New Jersey artisans in the decorative arts.

Museum Hours:

Tuesday – Sunday 
9 am to 4:45 pm 
Galleries begin closing 

at 4:30 pm
