Field Guide: Installation by Jacqueline Bishop and Art in Action 

Artist Jacqueline Bishop created this installation in the block-long semicircular driveway of an abandoned orphanage. 'My vision for the Milne Boys Home was to paint the drive with approximately 5,000 simple black bird silhouettes individually cut from original drawings and applied with Industrial Zone and Marking paint directly onto the pavement," Bishop says. These native Louisiana species 'symbolize the need to work together to rebuild our landscape," she adds. Immediately after Katrina, her most haunting memory was 'the deafening silence. There were no birds for days." And she says that many still have not returned to the most heavily damaged areas, hence this effort. Field Guide is a production of Art in Action, described by founder Elizabeth Underwood as a grass-roots project designed to 'actively participate in the re/definition of our ever-changing world." — D. Eric Bookhardt
