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 windowpanes relative to an outside location where they can be observed in the wild. Drawing attention to Fire Island birds, the artist seeks to bring awareness to the critical role these birds play in contributing to the biodiversity of the fragile coastal ecology. For both the migrating and native species, Fire Island, and by extension, Long Island, provide a crucial habitat for the eight birds on display.
