Birds Fly In: A Human Refuge

BIRDS FLY IN: A Human Refuge is a cross-cultural art collaboration focusing on themes related to Migration and Intuition. Artist Ellie Harold was surprised by birds who “flew” onto her canvas after the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. As intuitive messengers, they brought not only an entirely new way of painting, but comfort during confusing times. Later, as migration issues came to the fore, she felt birds were a metaphor for the universal human desire to move toward greater freedom and love. Following her intuition, Ellie met Mexican composer David Mendoza, creator of the soundtrack music, and German architect Wilfried Schley who designed the Refuge Space. This exhibit is intended to heighten awareness of how individuals, liberated from the cage of limiting beliefs, might open to good ideas that “fly in” to inspire action that is helpful to all. We hope this guide will stimulate your intuitive appreciation of the art and music and encourage you to record your own creative ideas, images or insights.
