John James Audubon was one of the major contributors of masterpieces to American art. With an avid interest in birds and drawing right from his childhood days, Audubon went on to be the most distinguished illustrator of the 19th century. Venturing into nature and observing and exploring different American birds, he documented species meticulously in his books. His books "The Birds of North America" is believed to be one of the finest contributions to ornithology and art.
The Audubon Center houses two art walls that showcase local artists' work. These exhibits are changed on a regular basis and feature many different mediums of art. We also feature programs and events throughout the year that help to inspire art, including our own "Nature's Artwork Summer Day Camp."
Artists provide their artwork and hang their own exhibit, a biography about themselves and business cards. Please call 417-782-6287 to learn more and how to participate.
