The Audobon Mural Project highlights endangered birds in a powerful series of murals

The portraits of hundreds of endangered bird species are now on display in a beautiful series of artworks across Upper Manhattan. The Audubon Mural Project kicked off in October 2014 with a mission to depict the large number of birds threatened by global climate change. So far, 314 species are represented across 20 artworks in the area surrounding the old neighborhood of John James Audubon.

The project was started in collaboration between the National Audubon Society and Gitler &_____ Gallery. They chose to depict 314 species to highlight a report last year which listed the 314 birds most threatened by climate change. Participating artists include Gaia, Iena Cruz, Hitnes, Lunar New Year, and many others. [h/t thisiscolossal.com]audubon-1 audubon-2 audubon-3 audubon-4 audubon-5 audubon-6 audubon-7 audubon-8
