Half of the life-sized pigeons were originally shown in the Mills College Museum. The rest were released closer to where they originated: both inside and outisde of the fence surrounding the Mills campus in Oakland, CA. All the birds left outside had tags inviting people to take them home and send me an image or story about where they end up.
