Save the Birds exhibit in New London
Paul Dominguez, a Wisconsin artist, partnered with NLPM pairing his colored pencil on wood drawings with specific bird mounts in the museum. The exhibit is also a fundraiser focused on the preservation of the NLPM bird collection. Dominguez's artwork is for sale and part of the proceeds benefit the museum. The exhibit will be open through August 31.
The New London Public Museum has more than 200 birds in the collection. Typically, more than 130 are on display year round. Many of the birds at NLPM are close to or over 100 years old. They desperately need to be cleaned and preserved.
There are a number of ways to donate to this project: stop by the museum and contribute what you want to the feather fund box, sponsor a bird for between $75-$200, or purchase Paul Dominguez's artwork at the museum. The money will be used to professionally preserve each bird and to purchase needed materials for long-term care. To find out more, visit the museum. The museum will keep working until every bird is safe.
