"Murmuration" sound installation coming to Blandy! This weekend only!

May 29, 2024 -- alf7f

UPDATE: Keep an eye on the weather this weekend if you have your heart set on experiencing "Murmuration." The exhibit will be taken down if rain seems likely, as moisture may damage the electronics in the sound-producing devices. Based on the forecast as of Friday morning, there is a greater chance of rain on Sunday than on Saturday.


Exciting news! This weekend only, Blandy visitors will have the opportunity to experience a unique soundscape at the Ginkgo Grove!
