NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk is looking for a few artists who’d like to spread their wings.

For the second year, the Zoo is seeking volunteers to paint exhibit windows to keep birds from flying into them.

The volunteers will use bird tape spaced two inches apart vertically and four inches apart horizontally to create engaging designs and protect the birds at the same time.

If you are an artist and would like to be a part of this project, send your contact information and a brief resume or bio to by Sept. 2, 2014 to apply.
