John James Audubon
The Birds of America
This Arts America program commemorates the two hundredth anniversary of John James
Audubon. To highlight Audubon's development as an artist, the program uses quotations
from his journal, illustrations from his original drawings and engravings, and works
of art by other artists of the period. The images are interwoven with live motion
nature photography and footage of sites significant to Audubon's life and work.
