Avian Odessey

Created by local Chicago artist Cheri Charlton in partnership with the Illinois Audubon Society  Cheri is an accomplished artist and educator at Columbia College and has done many murals around the City. Those local to Andersonville may remember the wings on the south wall of Hamburger Mary’s before they closed; that was one of her many works.

The mural will be a triptych, with the first panel featuring birds that migrate from the tropics to Chicago, the second featuring birds that are year-round natives and the third showcasing birds that migrate from the artic to Chicago. The Illinois Audubon Society also provided recommendations for specific birds that can be found in the neighborhood to help bring awareness to their plight.  The mural will serve to continue to beautify the new native garden WEAR created last year on the site of an old cell phone tower. The mural theme also aligns with the Mission of the WEAR garden, which is to provide an oasis of true native plants for birds, butterflies and other pollinators.
