Cantor Arts Center
328 Lomita Drive at Museum Way
Stanford, CA 94305-5060
Part of the exhibition Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser, this outdoor installation investigates the difficulty in translating the elusive sounds created by birds. In sound systems installed in six trees, visitors can hear audio recordings of United Nations translators attempting to vocalize the sounds of six different birds, without having previous familiarity of the bird and only relying on the materials found in birding guidebooks.
The Cantor is open to the public at 100% indoor capacity. Free, all-day reservations are required for all visitors, including members. Get yours here.
You can also explore Stanford art museums from the comfort of your home in Museums From Home.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
