Audubon Bird Mural Project: Virtual Walking Tour
July 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Audubon Bird Mural Project, sponsored in part by the National Audubon Society, is an impressive effort to create murals of over 300 North American birds. Most of the murals are in the Harlem neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights, where John James Audubon lived the last ten years of his life. All of the birds painted are threatened by climate change. So the Project is designed not only to display the birds’ beauty, but to make us aware of the challenges that they face.
The artworks range from lovely panels that fill in a former window to spectacular murals covering the entire side of a building. We will see over 40 murals, plus Audubon’s grave site, in a 50-minute slide presentation with live commentary. There will be time afterwards for Q&A.
