Festival Reveals 2018 Featured Sculpture!


The 2018 Waterfowl Festival has revealed this year’s Featured Art piece, a sculpture by Canadian artist Eric Tardif, which is unlike any work selected before. The impressionistic bronze stunningly showcases the “grace, calm, peacefulness and formality” of two long-tailed birds, which very much follows the founding wildlife mission and tradition of the Festival from the 1970’s. Read more about the 46-inch-tall piece titled  “The Lovers” here.
