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.

Two tours available!
Please join us on either date, it’s the exact same tour of these wonderful birds and the artists who honor them.

To purchase Tickets ($30.00):
October 28th 10am-12pm
November 4th 10am-12-pm

The tour will cover: Who are the artists? Where are they from? Why did they paint climate threatened  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 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)
