This mural's for the birds in Norwich
Norwich — Artist Candice Flewharty has been working on a mural depicting a variety of local birds on a building at 15 Town St. on and off, as the weather permits.
The inspiration came from an Audubon mural project she worked on in New York City, and a nearby home with a variety of very active bird feeders in the yard. On Tuesday, she was fine-tuning some details on it.
"Quarantine is a good time to make art," said Flewharty, who teaches art at nearby St. Patrick Cathedral School. "Not a good time to sell art."
She said she hopes to bring her students down to help in the future, and she still needs to add one of Norwich's ubiquitous turkey vultures to the image.
