Lina Dib on the inspiration behind “Here and Now”, part of “Paloma Sponsored By PNC Bank”

A few fun facts about some of the migratory birds featured in Here and Now: When birds migrate, they use the sun, the moon and other celestial bodies, as well as the earth’s magnetic field, to navigate. Some migratory birds have magnetic minerals like iron in their beaks that help them navigate, or a particular protein in their eyes that help them “see” magnetic fields.

Discover the magic of moonGARDEN at Discovery Green®

The marquee art exhibition at Discovery Green this fall is moonGARDEN, designed to dazzle with oversized, glowing orbs that will transform the park into a magical dreamscape. This work creates such a fascinating and dynamic world of light and color that many may be surprised that at its core, it’s based on the oldest and most universal form of storytelling on the planet: shadow play. Designed by Montreal art collective Lucion, moonGARDEN will be on display in the park from Sept. 29 through Oct. 7, where the artists hope that it inspires others to dream and find their own creativity.
