Celebrate the Nasher XChange Countdown at the Trinity River Audubon Center on Friday, June 14

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Nasher Sculpture Center will present Nasher XChange, a dynamic art exhibition consisting of 10 newly-commissioned public sculptures by contemporary artists at 10 sites throughout the city of Dallas from October 19, 2013 to February 16, 2014. Covering a diverse range of neighborhoods and approaches to sculpture, Nasher XChange represents the first citywide, museum-organized public art exhibition in the United States.

On Friday, June 14 the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Trinity River Audubon Center invite the public to celebrate the countdown of this historical Nasher XChange project at a free family birding event with celebratory release of homing pigeons. The Nasher Sculpture Center will announce the Nasher XChange projects in a 10-week countdown beginning on June 14.  The first 50 children in the gates will receive a free Nasher XChange commemorative hard hat.
