Join artist Jane Kim and Cornell Lab director John Fitzpatrick during this livestream broadcast, and learn about the painting of the Cornell Lab’s landmark mural, titled From So Simple a Beginning. The mural is being painted on the walls of the Cornell Lab’s visitor center, and features a 4,000 square foot map of the world and one member of each of the world’s 243 extant bird families (plus some extinct forms)—all painted life size. The one-hour broadcast will explore the scientific and artistic challenges behind creating the mural.
