Fiterman Gallery Art Show: The Conference of Birds

May 18
6:00 PM — 9:00 PM
Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay Street

A new exhibit, "The Conference of Birds," showcasing the work by 35 artists from New York City and beyond, opens with a reception on Wednesday, May 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay Street in Lower Manhattan.

The exhibit, curated by Brenda Zlamany, will run through Saturday, July 9 and is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, from 12 noon to 6:00 p.m. Art will be available for sale in the exhibit, with proceeds benefiting the BMCC Foundation Scholarship Fund.

The exhibit's theme centers on a 12th-century poem, "The Conference of the Birds," by the Persian poet Farid ud-Din Attar. In this epic, mystical-quest narrative, hundreds of birds embark on a perilous journey in search of a king called "The Simurgh," who can right the wrongs in their world.
