Coming in for a Landing

By Katherine Duke '05

If you happened to pass near the statue of Robert Frost on the First-Year Quad March 26, you may have noticed some unusual avian visitors to the Amherst campus: a flock of 30 white porcelain bird sculptures arranged on the ground. Artist Christy Hengst ’89—who made a guest appearance March 25 in the Theater and Dance course “Scripts and Scores” and delivered a public lecture in Paino Lecture Room—brought her traveling installation Birds in the Park to campus for a one-day showing; the flock appeared in the morning and “flew away” by early evening.
