Exhibit Opening: “The Image Hunter”

October 17, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free with Museum admission

Come experience a unique, colorful and captivating exhibition, and consider an old master and his motivations through a new lens. We are pleased to introduce The Image Hunter: On the Trail of John James Audubon, an exhibition featuring work by the artist Hitnes. John James Audubon (1785 – 1851) was an ornithologist, naturalist and painter. Audubon was the first to describe several Western birds to science, including the Bell’s vireo and Western meadowlark. He explored the country for over a decade in the early 1800s to create his opus, The Birds of America (1827–1839). Many consider this color-plate book of 435 watercolors, reproduced from hand-engraved plates, to be one of the finest ornithological works ever completed.
