'The Birds of America' Preview Party

Date: 

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Description: 

This exhibition, on July 22, presents 24 of the 435 prints comprising the best known work of 19th century American naturalist John James Audubon (1785-1851): the folio of engravings entitled The Birds of America. The execution of this series captivated Audubon's imagination for over twenty-five years, with the actual engraving of the images taking place from 1826 to 1838. The works on view at the Huntsville Museum of Art are from the private collection of Kathy and Michael Mouron of Birmingham, Alabama and are being shown publicly in this region for the first time. You can join us at the private preview party of this historical collection before it opens to the public. The preview party will include food and drinks catered by Chef Narvell, a string trio from the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra and the company of the collectors themselves. Tickets information at www.hsvmuseum.org and by calling 256-535-4350.
