Event Details

After last year’s successful resurgence of the Wings & Wildlife Art Show, this year’s juried show returns to the National Aviary highlighting thirty-three Wildlife artists from five states who will be exhibiting and selling their art throught the National Aviary.  

Featured Artist: Dave DiCello

Dave DiCello is a Pittsburgh photographer whose main subject is the city and region where he grew up.  Whether it's from on top of a building, standing on a frozen river, or high up in a helicopter, Dave captures unique angles of the Steel City, natural landscapes, and animals, always searching for a fresh perspective.
