Description

Exhibition: Bird Art: Audubon’s Royal Octavo

The Wakefield Estate, 1465 Brush Hill Rd, Milton

Thursday, May 2 - Saturday, May 4; 11am-3pm daily - $5 suggested donation


In conjunction with the 5/1 lecture the estate is sponsoring at Cunningham Park Hall entitled "Bird Art: Audubon’s Royal Octavo and the Democratization of Natural History," there will be an exhibition of the collection, a set of hand-colored litho-graphs from the 1840s, which will be held in the Davenport Mansion at the Wakefield Estate, 1465 Brush Hill Road in Mil-ton, May 2-4, 11am-3pm daily.

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.

 

Public Lecture: Bird Art: Audubon’s Royal Octavo and the Democratization of Natural History

Wednesday, May 1, 7:00-8:30pm

Cunningham Park Hall, 75 Edgehill Road, Milton, MA, 02186
