    THE AUDUBON MURAL PROJECT 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 
also 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 about 40 murals, plus Audubon’s grave 
site, in a 50-minute slide presentation with live commentary. There will be 
time afterwards for Q&A.
