Songs of the Birds: Airbrushed Acrylics by Carol Hanna

Mixing science and art, local artist Carol Hanna interprets the songs of birds using visual language that represents the color of the birds and the notes of their songs. The various stripe combinations of vibrating color in each painting represent each individual bird's measure of time or rhythm, the pitch or frequency of its vibrations per second, and the softness or loudness of its call. Hanna works with the U-M Biology Department to match each bird's exact color. Hanna has exhibited both locally and nationally, and her works are in permanent collections at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the C. S. Mott Children's and Women's Hospital. She received both a BFA and an MA from Eastern Michigan University.
