Warbler Migration

This two year project stands 5.5’ hx 25’ w and is comprised of over 500 hand-cut and painted aluminum polygons & 30 stainless steel cast Orange Crowned Warblers. Warbler Migration was inspired by this shy species that resides in the Dublin ecosystem and depicts the migratory pattern and constellations by which they navigate.  The project was funded by Bay West Development for the City of Dublin, CA at the Aster Apartments.
