A collection of colorful birds, ducks, and roosters by folk-artist Marvin Finn (1913-2007) arrived back at Waterfront Park today near the corner of Preston and Witherspoon streets. The public art display of 29 birds had been undergoing restoration involving repairing chipped paint. The total project cost $5,000 and was funded by an endowment set up for the art collection. While individually the birds are quite small, interacting with the flock en masse is quite a whimsical experience, and we’re glad to see the sculptures back in their rightful home.
