Organization: Audubon Society
Vanishing Point, by DeVere Burt
Monday, February 17, 7:00 p.m. at Winton Centre.
Did you know that John James Audubon has a connection to Cincinnati? Join us for an evening of tales about Audubon’s life and art, and how he continues to inspire local artists today. Using the Great Auk as a common thread for his talk, DeVere Burt will discuss Audubon’s history with the Western Museum Society in Cincinnati, his art, and his epic “The Birds of America”. Although Audubon never saw the Great Auk in life, he did paint it from a borrowed specimen. The extinction of the Great Auk in the 1800’s is an intriguing tale of species extinction, and DeVere will share the history of the specimen owned by the Cincinnati Museum Center. Audubon continues to inspire artists today, including local artist John Ruthven, and DeVere himself.
