Walter Kitundu installation at SFO

Artist Walter Kitundu with San Francisco Bay Area Bird Encounters at SFO

Magnolia Editions would like to congratulate Walter Kitundu, whose San Francisco Bay Area Bird Encounters was recently installed at Terminal 2 of San Francisco International Airport.

Detail from San Francisco Bay Area Bird Encounters

The work includes a mural with inlaid wood elements printed at Magnolia Editions, as well as two benches which double as interactive musical instruments. The benches and mural have embedded wooden panels which, when played left to right like a xylophone or marimba, produce the notes of songs by birds depicted in the mural.
