Zoom Meeting Tour of the Audubon Mural Project, with Leigh Hallingby

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:30am

This event is free and open to the public.

Please join us for this stimulating and engaging online program. The Audubon Mural Project Virtual Tour is one hour, with time for questions and answers at the end. We will see about 40 murals - significantly more than can be seen on an actual walking tour. This virtual tour affords the opportunity for a much broader audience to see and experience this amazing project. Each Zoom Tour can accommodate up to 100 people.

The Audubon Bird Mural Project is an impressive effort to create, in NYC, 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.
