Bird Houses for Fair Housing

Calling all artists, designers, architects, corporate team members and aspiring backyard enthusiasts to construct and/or design a bird (or dog!) house for a live and silent auction to benefit CNY Fair Housing.

CNY Fair Housing is a local non-profit organization working to eliminate housing discrimination, promote open communities, and ensure equal access to housing opportunity for all people.

Interested bird or dog house creators may decorate and sign a bird house that is provided by CNY Fair Housing (bird houses only) or may create a design of their own choosing. Bird houses can be decorative or functional. This year, we are also accepting dog houses (indoor/decorative preferable) for auction.

Register to participate by March 10, 2015. Finished bird/dog houses must be submitted no later than Thursday, March 24, 2016.

All bird houses will be displayed at The Community Folk Art Center, 805 E. Genesee St, Syracuse, during the auction event and prior to the event. COMPLETED BIRDHOUSES MUST FIRST BE DROPPED OFF AT CNY FAIR HOUSING, 731 James St., Syracuse. We can also pick up bird/dog houses. Coordinate deliveries by emailing

Every bird/dog house designer will receive two free tickets to the event and a good feeling from supporting a great cause. The Artist/corporate team creating the bird/dog house receiving the highest bid will win a $50 gift certificate to Santangelo’s Restaurant.
