Inspired by the synchronous movements of large flights of birds, as well as by the language of symbol and meaning we ascribe to birds, Ann Coddington Rast brings a flock indoors for our enjoyment. flock
, her new installation at the Craft Alliance in Grand Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-7528 or www.craftalliance.org
), comprises a flight of 1,100 slipcast ceramic birds dangling from the ceiling. Some fly up above our heads, but many swoop near the ground, close enough to touch. flock remains on display through Sunday, May 26, and the gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is free.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 1. Continues through May 26, 2013
