- If Peterson helped to remove bird identification from a purely academic procedure, John James Audubon, helped to remove nature form the drawing room appreciation of the Victorian era, and gave living things a beauty and expression on canvas which capitalized on the bird in its natural environment and in living poses. This program will dramatize the life of John James Audubon with dramatic vignettes. His life was exciting;as an explorer who lived with Indians and knew his birds and animals in the wild;as a journalist who recorded carefully what he saw;as a naturalist who was interested in life histories and naming the things he painted;and as a crusader, who in the last years of his life saw that the wilderness of America was being destroyed and pleaded for conservation. The guest on this program will be Joy Buba, sculptures and artist, who did a head of John James Audubon and who spent considerable time in studying his life. Through her comments and the use of some of the folio prints you will see Audubon’s work and hear her evaluate it.
