BRIGHAM CITY -- Brigham City celebrated its connection with the Bear River National Wildlife Refuge earlier this year --with the Main Street Flyway project, an exhibit of eight wood panels, designed by locals, depicting birds that fly over town.
The panels hang from light posts lining Main Street, but now fans of the art can take smaller versions home.
Laser-cut miniatures of the art will be for sale Saturday, June 16, at Brigham City's Heritage Arts Festival. They'll be sold through the Senior Center Information Booth at the festival, at 20 N. Main Street. The miniatures measure 2 1/2 inches by 4 inches each, and cost $4 apiece -- or $30 for all eight. Souvenir bookmarks can be purchased for 25 cents. The bird art will also be available through the Fine Arts Center, 58 S. 100 West, after the festival.
The art includes images of a great egret, a great blue heron, a marsh wren, a turkey vulture, an American white pelican, barn owls, a red-tailed hawk, and a green-winged teal.
There are plans to add more birds to the exhibit, and sell miniatures, in the future. Proceeds from the sale of miniatures benefit the nonprofit Fine Arts Center as well as a fund set aside for continuation of the Main Street Flyway project.
