Program Description

Event Details

The idea of birds in art probably brings to mind John James Audubon, the 19th-century ornithologist who wrote and illustrated the landmark series The Birds of America. However, Audubon was far from the only person to ever portray birds in art. From ancient through modern times, they have often been used as symbols of freedom, wisdom, and power of thought. In Western culture - the focus of this program - birds have frequently appeared in paintings, prints, and photographs.  

Join John Cebula, from the DuPage Birding Club, as he returns to provide a fascinating look at the depiction of birds in Western art.

Wednesday, February 8, 7 p.m. This is a free virtual program using Zoom.
