John James Audubon
The Birds of America
This Arts America program commemorates the two hundredth anniversary of John James Audubon. To highlight Audubon’s development as an artist, the program uses quotations from his journal, illustrations from his original drawings and engravings, and works of art by other artists of the period. The images are interwoven with live motion nature photography and footage of sites significant to Audubon’s life and work.
