The Springfield Art Museum will present a new exhibit "Hooves, Tails and Claws: Audubon's Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America", featuring a selection of prints from John James Audubon's portfolio "Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America," on loan from the St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Following the success of his "Birds of America" Audubon began to gather material for an equally ambitious project to document the animal life of North America. It's still considered to contain some of the finest animal prints published in America and is a superb example of color lithography. A Gallery Talk with Julie Dunn-Morton, Curator of Fine Arts at the St. Louis Mercantile Library, will take place Saturday Feb.1st at 2:00pm in the Eldredge and Spratlen Galleries at the Art Museum. It's free and open to the public. The exhibit will run through June 22nd. For more information call 837-5700 or visit www.springfieldmo.gov/art.
