Priscilla Yu Artist Statement: "Birds have always captivated me with their beautiful plumage and their ability to harness the wind for travel. I can only imagine the moment for a juvenile upon their first flight, to experience lifting off into the air, and feeling weightlessness for the first time. Cranes and herons in particular are enchanting to witness in their focused attention while on the hunt for prey."

"In this work, the Sandhill Cranes of the Winnipeg landscape take the center stage and I invite you to imagine with me --- the perspective, focus, and moment of boldness during a crane's first flight at sunset." (Source: Wall-to-Wall Mural & Culture Festival notes)
