AIR at 40: The Birds of Bernheim

By Jenny Zeller

Birds have long been a source of mystery and awe. In addition to the vast and beautiful landscape, the birds at Bernheim have been a major source of inspiration to our Artists in Residence in meaningfully connecting with the natural world during their residency periods.


2020 marks the 40th anniversary of Bernheim’s Artist in Residence program. Established in 1980, this internationally renowned program annually awards artists the opportunity to live and create site-specific work inspired by their total immersion experience at Bernheim. Throughout 2020, we are celebrating the contributions of the program’s past that has allowed our visitors to experience nature in a new way while enhancing awareness of Bernheim’s mission of connecting people to nature.
