Exhition: Bird Art: Audubon’s Royal Octavo May 2-4

In conjunction with Artweek Milton's May 1 lecture "Bird Art: Audubon’s Royal Octavo and the Democratization of Natural History," theWakefield Estate will host an exhibition of its Royal Octavo collection, a set of hand-colored litho-graphs from the 1840s, recently discovered among the book collection at the estate. The exhibition will be held in the Davenport Mansion at the Wakefield Estate, 1465 Brush Hill Road in Milton, Thursday, May 2 - Saturday, May 4; 11am-3pm daily - $5 suggested donation.

By understanding Audubon’s life and artistic process alongside the personal underpinnings and political implications of the octavo edition, a new conception of the artist and his world emerges – one in which the man comes of age alongside his nation, and sets in motion a host of historical events and movements to come.
