    I went to the 21c Museum today for my friend's birthday. The first exhibit in the building was this amazing pigeon display.


    some flyers and pamphlets, i loved illustrations.

    These were hand stitched pigeon cigar carriers , the colors were so vivid and they all had suttle patterns and prints.

    Was it all/all about carrier racer homer pigeon breed, or others shown n talked about also? What was writing? as wasnt able to read..
    maybe more things like these should and will pop up by more enthusaists, and can maybe get rid of non true myths of diseased "rats with wings" "flying rats" n "sky rats". that woody allen coined n then extermination companies promoted n profit big time on, cause as we know that pigeons as whole are hard to eradicate by artificial means once established in cities, but much cleaner than many other birds especially sadly beloved song birds.

    that writing is details about those cigars cast in resin, it says those cigars were smuggled from havana to key west carried by pigeon.

    Its hard for me to read also, it also details the names of the three pigeons that carried them and who they were named after

    she said only the first exhibit was about pigeons , its an art museum/ hotel/ restaurant

    i looked it up, to be more specific the first exhibit was about an artist guy Duke Riley and those were his harnesses and smuggled cigars from 2013. the link doesn't tell you anything about it but it is his show link.
