Science meets art at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as the Lab moves toward its centennial celebration in 2015. Artist, writer and naturalist James Prosek's "Wall of Silhouettes" mural spans the full length of the north wall in the Lab's visitor center.

The mural of life-sized silhouettes acknowledges the importance of the culture of bird watching to the scientific study of birds, and celebrates the blurred lines between hard science and the intangible beauty of personal experience in the field.
