Ultimate Birdhouse Auction

A creative fundraiser for the Athens Area Habitat for Humanity, the Ultimate Birdhouse exhibit and auction presents extraordinary, hand-crafted homes for feathered friends. Eclectic real estate includes the Mondrian-accented mid-century “The Tweet Modern” by Didi Dunphy and Jim Barsness, a gold Egyptian pyramid by Susan Hable Smith and the self-explanatory “Bird Brain” by Joni Younkins-Herzog. Over 40 artists have constructed houses, including Cindy Lou Farley, Tad Gloeckler, Barbara Mann, Jim Norton, Barbara Odil, Harold Rittenberry and Chris Taylor. The evening includes an in-person auctioneer, food and live entertainment, and auction proceeds will go towards the construction and revitalization of affordable housing in the Magnolia Terrace neighborhood.
