Public Art Takes Flight | NY Times

Public Art Takes Flight | NY Times

By THE EDITORIAL BOARD In his final years, John James Audubon, the celebrated 19th-century painter of bird life, lived in rustic uptown Manhattan in a house by the Hudson where some of his final paintings were of urban rats that caught his eye.
