See Audubon’s Birds of America come to life in this multimedia exhibition! Walk into the immersive video room “The Audubon Experience” and find yourself surrounded by a virtual swamp and forest where 20 of Audubon’s birds are brought to life through motion and sound.
“The Audubon Experience is unique,” says Don Luce, Bell curator of exhibits. “It’s a walk-in, immersive experience using Audubon’s art animated in an environmental setting.”
The exhibition will also include selections from the Bell’s rare double elephant folio of Birds of America, one of fewer than 120 in the world. See these original, recently conserved prints from our collection, as well as interpretive panels and materials from our Audubon and the Art of Birds exhibit.
The immersive experience is from OLO creative farm, commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2017. Audubon images courtesy of Joel Oppenheimer, Inc. Immersive sound design by notclub; technical support by Ezra Birt.
