A Deal with the Pigeons

Pigeons are everywhere in New York and we often ignore them.  We consider them to be pests, contributing nothing to our environment, sometimes referred to as “rats with wings”.  But we must learn to coexist with other species, we do not live in isolation. A Deal with the Pigeons is an art installation for Washington Square Park that encourages us to interact with the pigeons, to rethink the relationship between humans and animals and to reconsider the space each deserves. It is a way to give pigeons a stage in the city of New York.
