Audubon from the Artist's Point of View

Thursday, April 3, 5:30 p.m., West Gallery
with Jim Rataczak, bird artist and naturalist; and Christine Baeumler, environmental artist and professor of art at the University of Minnesota
Audubon and the Art of Birds contains works by over 40 artists from the 1500s to the present day who have depicted the beauty and biology of birds. Tour the exhibition from the perspective of two artists—one who continues in the tradition of naturalistic depiction of birds and their habitats; and the other, a lover of birds and nature, who strives to express her concern for the environment in contemporary art installations.
