OPEN HOUSE NEW YORK - WALKING TOURS: CONTEMPORARY MURALS OF AUDUBON BIRDS

Ever wonder about the artists who created the Audubon bird murals on security gates and apartment buildings in Washington Heights? With this two hour tour (starting at John James Audubon’s grave in Trinity Church Cemetery) learn all about the Audubon Murals.
Who are the artists? Where are they from? Why did they paint climate threatened North American birds all over Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights? Art historian, tour guide and Northern Manhattan resident Mary-Beth Shine will answer these questions and many more with this fascinating tour of the Audubon Mural Project between 155th & 165th Streets.
And…learn a bit about Northern Manhattan’s culturally diverse and thriving community. Things have changed a bit since John James Audubon lived here.
Meet at Trinity Church Cemetery (155th & Broadway South/East Corner)
