The Audubon Mural Project is a public art initiative of the National Audubon Society, in partnership with the Harlem-based Gitler & ____ Gallery. The project is inspired by the legacy of John James Audubon (a former neighborhood resident), and is energized by findings from the National Audubon Society that nearly half of all North American bird species face dire threats to their survival by 2080 due to climate change. The Audubon Mural Project commissions artists to paint murals of each of the threatened birds—a total of 314 species—throughout the Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights neighborhoods of Manhattan.
 
Visit the Audubon Mural Project to learn more about the initiative and view images and a map of all the completed murals.
 
The project was featured in-depth on an episode of NYC-ARTS on PBS, another great way to learn more about the project! 
 
NYC Audubon’s has been offering guided tours to see these breathtaking murals. Tours are monthly, but can increase in frequency depending on demand. 
 

Special Notice:

These tours are currently on hiatus until we can all meet together safely in person. It is possible to arrange private two-hour tours with Avi Gitler. Please contact amp@gitlerand.com to inquire.
