This Saturday, January 14, The Tucson Museum of Art (my employer) is holding a birdhouse-themed silent auction as a fund raiser for an upcoming exhibition. Numerous artists and architects, including TCites Cheeky Half, have created some pretty impressive birdhouses. I normally wouldn't think of posting this kind of self-promotion but many of you have expressed interest in these mosaics and this one is REALLY impressive. And the best part is that this is the very first mosaic the Cheeky Halves are letting out of their possession!

The "birdhouse" dimensions are approximately 20x11x6 inches. The base adds another 3.5" and the birds and foliage add... a lot more. This thing is BIG.

This link will take you to more pics of the birdhouse, the event invitation, and a few other architect-designed pieces:

Very nice! That A-frame bird house could use some tiki embellishments too.
