Walking with Birds: The Art of Audubon and MacGillivray

Walking with Birds: The Art of Audubon and MacGillivray
-

We hope you’ll join us at this fascinating event, celebrating the friendship between a nineteenth-century Aberdeen professor, William MacGillivray, and the American naturalist and artist John James Audubon. The exhibition showcases Audubon’s spectacular ‘Birds of America’, a metre-high book filled with Audubon’s stunning life-size colour depictions of American bird species, with text prepared by MacGillivray. At this alumni event museum curators will be on hand to provide a guided tour of the exhibition and an exclusive turning of the pages of this incredible book. You will also have the chance to enjoy a glass of wine and delicious canapés with your fellow alumni. Tickets are £8 per person, including refreshments.
