Through Jan. 3, 2021
Louise Hauss and David Brent Miller Audubon Galleries

Curated in response to the pandemic, “Nurture” brings together 12 striking large-scale works on paper from the elephant folios of John James Audubon’s “Birds of America.”

Each work-on-paper depicts nature’s family unit, playing out the natural life cycle and quest for survival. Visitors are invited to study the detail of the nests and the vibrant colors of each bird; It is also an opportunity to reflect on the ways in which we need to be nurtured and the ways we build our nests and support structure during this time.

The work of the famed 19th-century naturalist takes on a new, timely meaning in light of our own nesting and search for comfort as we face the uncertain.
