Sloth From National Aviary Helps Visitors Paint One-Of-A-Kind Mural

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The National Aviary had the cutest live model for its weekend painting class.


On Saturday, Valentino — a sloth from the aviary — attended the class where visitors were painting part of a 30-foot community mural.


The mural was designed by Maria DeSimone Prascak.

The mural features the National Aviary’s birds and sloths in a tropical rainforest setting.


“It’s a wonderful collective creation that alone someone might think, ‘I can’t paint a mural,'” Prascak said. “But you do that part, everybody does a part together, we have a 30-foot mural.”


The mural should be completed on Sunday, and the aviary will announce when it will be unveiled to the public.
