The North Carolina Museum of Art will again display the popular The Birds of America by John James Audubon starting Saturday, February 16, as part of its free permanent collection. Today only about 200 complete sets of The Birds of America exist in the world.
At the same time, the NCMA opens The Audubon Experience, an immersive video room adjacent to the gallery that surrounds the visitor with scenes from forests and jungles, mimicking what Audubon would have experienced in his travels throughout the world. Visitors will learn about the naturalist’s life and artistic process in the temporary experience, on view until September 15, 2019.
