"Clean Water for Birds and People" mural completed
Audubon Minnesota and Articulture’s Youth Arts Collaborative (YAC) worked together to envision, design and paint this special public arts mural that was unveiled Nov. 19. There was additional support from Aveda, Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association (SENA) and Brush Monkey.
Professional teaching artists supported YAC teens as they created a beautiful mural design that tells the story of what it means to live in a river city within the Mississippi Flyway, a major aerial highway for birds. The teens wanted to show the responsibility they felt for protecting our clean water resources.
The mural is located in Minneapolis on the busy intersection of 28th Ave. S and 42nd St. E, across from A Baker’s Wife. Daily, hundreds and potentially thousands of people will see the mural as they pass by and visit nearby businesses. This special public arts mural tells the story of how people and whole communities can take action each and every day to help keep our water clean for birds, people and entire ecosystems.
