Clare Arts Office in conjunction with the Clare Museum is delighted to present “Blue Birds” and exhibition of artwork by Jakobus Smit from 27th February to 29th March, 2024 inclusive.

This exhibition aims to bring awareness to the decline of many bird species on the British Isles and to ask if we can do more to protect them? Utilising oversized letters as a device to strengthen their identity and limited colour tones of blue and grey to create a sense of urgency.

According to Jakobus “The Mission Statement of this exhibition is “To warn of coming danger” and “Canary in the coal mine”.  The Blue Bird campaign aims to bring awareness, educate and help further push our efforts to protect birds.”

He continues “To inspire future generations, policy makers, product developers and consumers, it begins with you and me! Let’s grow a strong community across Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England, taking a stand to protect wild birds.”
