Info

September 14-December 13. Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sundays, noon to 4 p.m. The Sharon Historical Society and Museum will provide context with an exhibition on Audubon's life and work. The show will explore his fascinating professional and family life, the evolution of his publications, his innovative working methods, his complex relationship with the conservation of American species and their environment, and his heritage in the founding and work of the National Audubon Society and Audubon Sharon. Among the objects on display are one of Audubon's rare portrait drawings, his favorite snuff box, and a beautiful specimen of a passenger pigeon, abundant in Audubon's lifetime but by the early 20th Century extinct. The exhibition will be complemented by an exhibit of works by local artist Allen Blagden, one of today's foremost wildlife watercolorists.
