“Birds for Books” Art Exhibition on Display at Oregon Law
Not all birds have headed south for the winter. In fact, many can be seen right here at Oregon Law.
“Birds for Books,” an exhibit by Eugene artist, and University of Oregon alumnus, Larry McQueen currently is open at the University of Oregon School of Law’s first floor dean’s suite. His works include original illustrations of the many birds of North America, South Asia, and Peru.
McQueen’s exhibit is based on his contributions to three major books on birds: All the Birds of North America (Harper Collins 1997); Birds of South Asia (Lynx Edicions 2005); and Birds of Peru (Princeton University Press 2007). The major focal points of the exhibit are McQueen’s stunning illustrations of the birds of Peru, the home of more bird species than any other country in the world.
McQueen’s work is widely known and respected, having appeared in nationally available calendars, catalogs, and magazines, including Living Bird. He has illustrated for many books, such as The Audubon Master Guide to Birding, and his images appear in a number of field guides.
