In combination with the special exhibition, “Outsider Aviary: Robert W. Smeltzer’s Birds of America,” see a screening of the 2017 documentary, “Audubon.” Naturalist and 19th century painter John James Audubon explored the American frontier in search of “the feathered tribes” he loved and studied. A self-taught artist and ornithologist, he left a legacy of art and science that made him famous in his lifetime and endures to this day. The program, filmed in locations where Audubon painted, brings to life his timeless paintings with dazzling footage of the living birds he immortalized – and celebrates visually the natural world he described in his writings. Interviews reveal the man, explore his art, and put his groundbreaking work in modern perspective. (Not Rated, 56m)

Screening is free as part of Free First Saturday; no reservation needed. An additional screening is scheduled at 11 a.m.
