Put a Bird in It: Designer Birdhouses in Portland

designer birdhouses by Sockeye

Portland’s WeMake has organized the construction and deployment of over 100 designer birdhouses throughout the city. Local, national and international artists answered the call to action and created amazing birdhouses that will be auctioned off to help raise money for arts and music education in Portland schools. The Put a Bird In It party and auction takes place Friday, October 12th at Union Pine during Design Week Portland. From seedy motels to Stormtroopers, there’s a birdhouse for everyone! Put a bird on it!

For those of you scratching your heads to recall the connection between Portland and birds, refresh your memory with this clip from Portlandia:
