Endangered Species Art: Cerulean Warbler Mobile

Mettje Swift, founding artist of Banner Art Studio created the model shown as a working model from which she and her assistants will fabricate a full size suspended installation for Wheeling Jesuit University. The model shown left is a 3/4″ scale model, incorporating a native song bird, the Cerulean Warbler and the leaves of the Paw Paw tree, a low-growing tree that is plentiful in the Warbler’s habitat.  When completed, the suspended mobile sculpture will measure approximately 28′ vertically and 11′ horizontally.  The mobile will be suspended in Wheeling Jesuit University’s “Lundy Lounge,” a large atrium and gathering place for students to open this fall. **UPDATE! See the completed suspended art installation here.

Banner Art Studio is excited to be working with Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV on this project intended to encourage the viewer to explore the importance of ecological awareness in the Appalachian region and beyond. WJU Visiting Professor of Visual Art developed a concept for the University that features the Cerulean Warbler, a threatened species and the fastest declining neotropical migrant songbird.  Professor Tambasis and her students will be designing and installing a mosaic in the space that will illustrate the interconnectedness between species – including humans – in the natural environment.  The Cerulean Warbler, for instance, relies not only upon the Appalachian forest area to breed, but also upon shade grown coffee plantations in the northern Andes.

For Mettje the theme speaks to the spirit. She states that “birds have an abstract form similar to many depictions of angels, and angels have been in artists’ repertoires for many centuries. Indeed, when the armatures were seen in the welding shop, a visitor said, ‘Oh you’re doing angels this time.’ ”

Mettje says that “color and color combinations have meaning and emotional response shared by most people. The birds are in blues and whites; blue is the spiritual color, white is the color of purity. Mother Mary most often is shown in light blues. Wings give flight to the Spirit. Greens denote growth, both intellectual and spiritual growth.  My job as a ‘banner’ designer is to represent the highest aspirations of my clients and to give them a ‘banner’ to unite the group.  I give this imagery to represent Wheeling Jesuit University.”

Banner Art Studio has produced art for schools, Universities and organizations across the nation and the world featuring butterflies, spiders, tigers, and the Florida black panther (to name a few).  We are excited to once again use an innovative technique we developed for producing and shipping very large fabric mobiles.  Shown right is a Banner Art Studio artist working with the lightweight stainless steel in our 10,000 square foot studio in Del Norte, Colorado. These stainless steel forms will provide the “skeleton” of the finished piece.

Are you looking for a large-scale art mobile concept for your organization? Celebrating biodiversity is a fantastic idea for mobiles, architectural and atrium art. We love this idea for nature centers, recreation centers, conservation and advocacy groups, as well as corporations with a focus on “going green”.

At Banner Art Studio, our specialty is producing large scale fabric art mobiles and displays for architectural interiors. The large, lightweight fabric mobiles float and turn with interior air currents, and their translucent fabric catches natural and manmade light to enhance the atmosphere of interior atrium spaces. Learn more here.

Our Installation, Care, and Maintenance Program is offered for all of the art that we produce. Learn more about Our Process and the materials we use on our FAQ page. See more fabric atrium art photography in our Galleries.
