   BELOW   an early collaborative public project, initiated by GHW, as part of her work as the Education Developer/Coordinator for The Drawing Center in Soho their first location. Students from El Puente School  for Peace and Justice in Brooklyn NY, with J. Mancuso artist/art teacher, created a sidewalk drawing in homage to Louis Agassiz Fuertes (+see below)  an American ornithologist, illustrator/artist, considered as one of the most prolific American bird artists after John James Audubon. They created in response to the work of  American artist Charles E. Burchfield (b. April 9, 1893 - d. January 10, 1967 a painter and visionary artist, known for his passionate watercolors of nature scenes and townscapes), which were on exhibition at The D.C. at the time. And... to my left, in the polka-dot skirt the wonderful student intern asst. then...tasty salsa and fresh made corn chips donated by local restaurant for these working artists, and lots of interest from the public!

 +Louis Agassiz Fuertes (February 7, 1874 Ithaca, New York – August 22, 1927 Unadilla) was an American ornithologist, illustrator and artist. He set new standards for ornithological art and is considered as one of the most prolific American bird artists after John James Audubon. He made thousands of bird paintings and sketches, based on studies in nature and details from fresh specimens, that illustrate a range of ornithological works. He died in a car accident near New York, shortly after returning from an expedition to Abyssinia. His name is commemorated in a species described by Frank Chapman as Icterus fuertesi although now considered a subspecies of the Orchard Oriole. He influenced several other wildlife artists after him apart from mentoring George Miksch Sutton. The Wilson Ornithological Society instituted an award in his memory in 1947.  

These young artists, led by a professional artist gave Louis Agassiz Fuertes  great artist, scientist, and researcher a   "public presence" through this collaborative drawing project!
