NYC Walking Tour: The Audubon Mural Project
The goal of this impressive public art project is to create murals of over 300 North American birds in the Hamilton and Washington Heights neighborhoods of Upper Manhattan, where John James Audubon lived the last ten years of his life. The 'AMP' is designed not only to display the birds’ beauty but also to make us aware of the challenges that they face–all of the birds painted are threatened by climate change. The artworks range from lovely panels that fill in a window to spectacular murals covering the entire side of a building. This walking tour will allow you to see over 30 murals, mostly along Broadway, between W. 148th and 164th Streets. The tour also visits Audubon’s grave site in the uptown cemetery of the historic Trinity Church.
