Does lead in New Orleans have mockingbirds singing the blues?

Artist Jessica Levine, in collaboration with Karubian Lab, will create an interactive, mixed media visual art installation to bring the study titled,"Does lead in New Orleans have mockingbirds singing the blues?" to wide-spectrum public attention. The installation will be designed as an impromptu art spectacle within a 10 x 10 foot pop-up tent, to be staged where people gather: festivals, parks, schools, farmers markets. The installation hopes to enroll city dwellers in citizen science as it engages the viewer in artful wonderment and delight, to celebrate and appreciate the mockingbird as a beloved New Orleans icon of resilience, musicality, and thriving urban nature.

You can see the installation in person here:
