Ashley Cecil, Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s artist in residence, created a pattern that museum visitors can color and
decorate in the back of Discovery Basecamp, the museum’s permanent, interactive gallery.
Her pattern features drawings of birds that are often killed from colliding with windows. Carnegie Museum of Natural History is one of several local organizations that came together to form BirdSafe Pittsburgh, which works to reduce window collisions. Cecil’s coloring wall was designed to raise awareness about the problem.
Visitors can share what they’ve colored and tag it #artofcmnh!
