Description

The Migrating Mural is a series of murals painted along migration corridors shared by both people and endangered animals. The first Migrating Mural highlights the Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep. A series of four murals showcasing the life of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep will be painted along a 150-mile stretch of California’s Highway 395. Having once roamed California’s Eastern Sierra range, the sheep’s population dropped to just 100 in the 1990s. Today they are recovering slowly, with about 500 in the wild. “500 and Rising” celebrates this benchmark count as well as the completion of the first mural in Independence, CA. Sierra bighorn are elusive and live in harsh and inaccessible habitat. Most people have never seen this majestic animal. With the Migrating Mural, hard to see wildlife becomes easy to see.
