Birds of Harlem: The Audubon Mural Project

Those ubiquitous metal security gates that roll down over New York City businesses at night are looking way cooler thanks to a collaborative street art initiative by the National Audubon Society and a local gallery owner. The project in John James Audubon's old neighborhood depicts in all their sometimes garish splendor the 314 bird species threatened by climate change, in hopes we'll notice - and help save - them.

Hooray for people! We have our moments Not all is drear and despair. Not all is sorrow and suffering. There is also delight and inspiration, creativity and talent!

Now that's a street 'tag'. Audubon would be impressed.

He was from the neighborhood don'cha know!

I hope those who make excuses for people destroying works of art don't encourage people who don't like Bluejays from paint balling these works of art too.
