Monumental Mural Depicting the Evolution of Birds by Jane Kim

Artist Jane Kim the founder of Ink Dwell studio (whose mission is “to inspire people to love and protect the Earth one work of art at a time”), and a team of seven helpers, has just completed painting a 3,000-square-foot mural on the wall of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Visitor Center in Ithaca, New York, that depicts the evolution of birds. The mural features winged representatives from each of the world’s 243 families of modern birds, painted to scale on a massive world map on the 70-foot by 40-foot wall.

This Wall of Birds (whose official title is “From So Simple a Beginning: Celebrating the Evolution and Diversity of Birds”) is a commission to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Cornell Lab, one of the world’s leading ornithological institutes founded in 1915, where Kim worked as an intern in its scientific illustration program in 2011.
