Todd McGrain at MAG

McGrain first exhibited at MAG in the 1999 Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition, and all five of his Lost Birds were exhibited in 2008’s RochesterBiennial.

In 2007 the Passenger Pigeon was installed behind the bus stop near the corner of University Avenue and Goodman Street, as a complement to the ARTWalk Artistic Bus Shelter project.  Ed Stringham, the designer of the bus shelter, had envisioned a piece of art placed nearby as part of his design.

When the grounds were redesigned to accommodate Tom Otterness’s Creation Myth, the Passenger Pigeon was moved to a more sheltered spot along the north side of the Gallery, near the entrance.
