For this year's WeMake Put A Bird In It fundraiser (part of Design Week PDX) LAIKA artists also made 10 birdhouses to help fund All Hands Raised, a non-profit raising money to keep arts and music education part of Portland schools' curriculum. Take a look at some of the spooky results below or read more about our participation in Design Week PDX.

Birdlejuice by Cammi Upton "The colors in the movie Beetlejuice are so striking and fun that I thought it would be fun to use as inspiration for my birdhouse. My favorite part was designing the bird to look like Beetlejuice. And now I have to say Beetlejuice one more time since I already said it twice!"

Cherry Street Inn by Maria Andreotti "Bill Murray inspires my whole life and my heart."
Olde CrowsNest by Kyle Bell "What if Jack Sparrow was actually a small bird? Maybe he would have lived in a house like this."
