Notes on “ Birds of Climatory Prey” (a Mile of Murals partnership with the Audubon Mural Project)

by Lea Pinksy
We brought on 6 exceptional Chicago artists to work on this project. We met with a rep from the Chicago chapter of Audubon who gave us a thorough orientation and a comprehensive list of threatened birds in six categories designated by habitat. Each artist was given a habitat, chose a few birds, and collaborated on the design.
They are completing the painting work now. The artists are Chris Silva, Anthony Lewellen, Andrea Jablonski, Ruben Aguirre, Tyrue Slang Jones, and Cheri Charlton.
Here are some photos.
The birds you see include:
Tree Swallow, Baltimore Oriole, Peregrine Falcon, Bald Eagle, Hooded Merganser, Mallard, and Wood Duck, Black Crowned Night Heron, Black Cormorant, and a few more.
