Call For Art! Friends of Roberts Bird Sanctuary Seeks Tiny Roberts-Themed Art for Fundraising Auction.

Support urban wildlife and birders of all abilities. Donate your art for the Tiny Roberts Art Fundraiser!

Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary is an undeveloped natural area in Lyndale Park near Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, MN, part of the Chain of Lakes Important Bird Area and located on the homelands of the Dakota people, the original stewards and inhabitants of this area.

Friends of Roberts Bird Sanctuary, an all-volunteer non-profit public charity, is seeking local artists to donate their tiny wildlife art inspired by the bird sanctuary for an upcoming online art auction. Proceeds from the auction will be used to construct a wooden deck adjacent to the visitors shelter. The new Roberts terrace will improve accessibility and provide a great spot for people of all ages and abilities to observe wildlife in the sanctuary.
