The neighborhood near where John James Audubon (the artist known for his illustrations of birds) is buried is becoming an art gallery. The National Audubon Society is working with local artists and landlords to transform ugly roll-down gates in front of shops into murals of birds.

The grafittied roll gates and blank sheet metal walls are being covered with art to bring attention to the North American birds directly threatened by climate change. The National Audubon Society also developed an app for people to go on a self-guided audio tour through the neighborhood. They can walk through the streets while learning more about the birds in the murals, each artist, and the threat of climate change to wildlife.

But more than creating a cool art exhibit, The National Audubon Society is bringing the issue’s attention to the community — not by plastering it with flyers and posters, but by beautifying it with art.
