Barrier Island Birds

Smiths Point, NY - Auto Body is pleased to announce a photography exhibition by Kyle Kusa on July 1st, 2017 from 2-5pm at the Fire Island Wilderness Visitor Center. This show will run until Labor Day Weekend with viewing hours during the FINS operating schedule.

Barrier Island Birds is a photography exhibition featuring the work of artist Kyle Kusa. Through the use of the building’s unique octagonal architecture and panoramic views, eight bird photographs are placed on the window panes relative to an outside location where they can be naturally seen. Drawing attention to Fire Island birds, the artist seeks to bring awareness of the critical role these birds play in maintaining healthy biodiversity within the fragile coastal ecology. Both for migrating species, and native ones, Fire Island, and by extension, Long Island, provide a crucial habitat for the eight birds on display.
