A Very Birmingham Auction
If you fancy getting your hands on a one-off piece of art created by local Brum artists and makers, supporting a great charity and the bird population to boot, then get to eBay this week for the Birmingham Bird Box auction. Local artists and bespoke makers have joined forces to create six unique bird boxes, released throughout this week for auction to raise funds for Mind Mental Health. From our favourite Brummy mummy, Joe Lycett’s infamous ‘TITS’ box, to a ‘Bad Bird BBQ’ (no birds harmed, promise) — each box has a unique concept aligned to the artist's style and past work. The project was first hatched in lockdown, keeping collective creative hands and minds busy as artists and makers joined forces to create six distinct bird boxes. The concept is simple: look after nature and it'll return the favour. Making this quirky idea even better, you can go bird(box) watching and support various independent cafes and venues over the coming week, with the boxes currently on show at Caneat and Artefact (Stirchley), Hive (Moseley), The Early Bird (Kings Heath) and The Loft (Southside).
