Museum in Knoxville to host 'Birds in Art' exhibit

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new museum exhibit at the University of Tennessee that is scheduled to be unveiled later this month will celebrate the timeless appeal of birds.

The University of Tennessee in Knoxville says the touring exhibit, "Birds in Art," begins Saturday and runs through Aug. 18 at the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture.

The exhibit will feature 60 paintings, sculptures and graphics created in the past two years by artists from around the world.

On June 1, the museum will commemorate its 50th anniversary with family activities, including one themed around the "Birds in Art" exhibition.

A stroller tour and a bird-related family activity day are also scheduled in June.
