This exhibit was a collaboration of two artists Ann Rosenthal and Steffi Domike commemorating the centennial of the extinction of the passenger pigeon. In this exhibit, the artists paralleled the plight of the passenger pigeon with that of the their maternal lineage, piecing together the fragmented stories and forced migrations of both pigeons and Jews.
It was a pleasure to design this catalog! The artwork created by the artists for the exhibit is wonderful and the subject matter is quite interesting. As the designer, I wanted to give these works a beautiful, harmonic place in print to tell their story. I felt that it was important to visually carry the ideas of flight and migration throughout the book as they are overarching themes in the exhibit.
