Looking for something to do this Sunday afternoon? Come by the Audubon Museum for a free showing of the new documentary, “Art for Science’s Sake: Stalking John James Audubon,” at 1:30 p.m. in the theater. The film is about one hour in length. It will be followed by a discussion with the film’s producers and the museum curator about John James Audubon, his work, and the production.
“Art for Science’s Sake: Stalking John James Audubon” was produced by Dr. Leigh Anne Howard and Dr. Dave Black of the University of Southern Indiana’s Communiction and Media Department. This one-hour film explores the art and science of 19th century naturalist John James Audubon. Over the last 10 years, Dr. Leigh Anne Howard and Dr. Dave Black traced Audubon’s footsteps and interviewed a variety of Audubon biographers and experts about the naturalist’s contributions to the study of birds through his art.
