Background on Murals
The Audubon Bird Mural Project is an impressive effort to create, in New York City, 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. Since all of the birds painted are threatened by climate change, the Project is designed not only to display the birds' beauty, but also to make us aware of the challenges that they face. Because the artists have license to represent the birds in any way that they choose, there is tremendous variation in the styles of painting. The 40 murals we will see range from lovely panels that fill in a former window to spectacular murals covering the entire side of a building.
