The Artalicious Not Just for the Birds! Auction Committee is looking for artists, designers, and creative people to create one of a kind art birdhouses and bird feeders for the Not Just for the Birds! Auction fundraiser held during Artalicious in downtown Adrian Saturday, September 18, 2021. Funds raised from this event will support Lenawee youth art programs.

Completed birdhouses and feeders are due Monday, September 13, 2021, at the Adrian District Library, 143 E. Maumee Street, Adrian. The birdhouses and feeders will be available for Silent Auction at the library and will remain on display through Artalicious in downtown Adrian until 6:00 pm on Saturday. Winning bidders can pick up their birdhouses and/or feeders at the library at 7:00 pm on Saturday, September 18, 2021.

The Adrian District Library and the Adrian Center for the Arts (ACA) will host a class in early September on the ACA campus for those interested in making a ceramic birdhouse or bird feeder.  No previous experience is necessary.  Further details on the class will be forthcoming soon.

Meanwhile, participants can make their own birdhouses or feeders from any material: wood, tin cans, recycled material or purchase unfinished birdhouses at Hobby Lobby or JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores. Artists are encouraged to be creative. Interested artists can contact Jen Wrzesinski at 517-265-2265 or jwrzesinski@adrian.lib.mi.us for more information. Please download and complete the Artalicious Not Just for the Birds! commitment form to include with your donated birdhouse or bird feeder.
