Bird Strike Decal Design CompetitionArt in the Year of Climate Change: Prevent Bird Deaths on Campus
Since 1970, nearly 1 out of 3 birds in the US and Canada has vanished. Window collisions are one of the leading causes of bird deaths in the US, accounting for an estimated half a billion dead birds a year.
One way to prevent birds from striking windows is to reduce the reflective surface with a vinyl decal.
Bird strike “hot spots” can be found all across campus. To help mitigate our campus impact on birds, we want to feature your design on a campus building!
We invite Brandeis undergraduates to submit designs for a bird strike window decal. The winning design will be installed on Shiffman Humanities Center or Golding Judaica Center and unveiled during the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Arts, April 21-30, 2023.
Deadline to apply: February 27, 2023
A prize of $200 will be awarded to the winning individual or team. A panel made up of faculty, staff, students, and alumni will evaluate the entries. Entries will be scored based on the following criteria:
• Artistic/creative expression
• Addressing the challenge
Currently enrolled Brandeis undergraduates in any field of study are welcome to apply.
