National Bird Day will take place on Sat, Jan. 5th, 2008 and thinkspace will be hosting a special exhibition entitled “Fight For Flight” that will have an opening reception on Fri, January 4th. The opening will be sponsored by Dewars and Grolsch and will take place from 7-11PM. There will be a special motorized installation from P. Williams in our front room and an exhibition in our main gallery featuring over fifty international artists contributing bird inspired works for this special 2-day only exhibition.

We will also be open on Sat, Jan. 5th from noon till 6PM for further viewing of the show and we will have a special coloring contest for kids taking place in our project room during the day that afternoon, to encourage families to come through together and experience this amazing gathering of talent and hopefully walk away with some knowledge gained on our feathered friends and all things cute and furry that the API help to protect and defend.

· Opening Reception: Fri, Jan. 4th, 2008 (show runs through Sat, Jan. 5th – special 2-day only event)
· Show will benefit: and help to spread the word on National Bird Day (Sat, Jan. 5th, 2008)
· 20% of all sales will go to the API and we will also have an API booth on hand in our back project room accepting further donations from our patrons during National Bird Day weekend.
