Las Pioneras redefines the relationship between local and global. The birds in this series are native to Wisconsin and migratory to South America. They are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, a treaty that stands for environmental conservation and also the partnership of people to be stewards across borders.
These migratory songbirds travel as far as 9,000 miles in one year. They fly at night to avoid predators and memorize the constellations to find their way.
