Art Alive appeared as the Bird Rock community created a visual message of PEACE at the 1st annual Birdstock event held in Bird Rock Park behind Bird Rock Elementary School. Numerous community members of all ages gathered for a group photo around the Andy Goldsworthy inspired temporary art installation. The design team led by Bird Rock 7th grader/artist Eric Haerr formed a 15 ft. diameter giant peace sign comprised of flowers foliage & natural elements from neighborhood gardens and the beach.
It was quite a sight to see, watching children & adults add a piece to the peace, and organically fabricate a big message to send out into the world. Was it a coincidence that the date of Birdstock happened to fall on the anniversary of 9/11?
