Join Us for the Next Cornell Lab of Ornithology Seminar


Wednesday, August 12, 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

An Epic Mural Celebrates the Evolution and Diversity of Birds: Talk to the Artist

Join us for a special live-streamed conversation during the painting of a landmark mural on one giant wall of the Cornell Lab's visitor center. The mural, titled From So Simple a Beginning, features a 3,000 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 1-hour broadcast will explore the scientific and artistic challenges behind creating the mural. 


Featuring artist Jane Kim of Ink Dwell studio and Cornell Lab executive director John Fitzpatrick, interviewed by senior science editor Hugh Powell. They'll be answering your questions (via live chat) from a hydraulic lift halfway up the mural wall—it should be an exciting talk full of the beauty of birds and art.


You can watch any of our past live-streamed seminars via the free video seminar archive on our website.
