In April, Ste. Genevieve’s art community will be celebrating the legacy of the town’s most famous artist. John James Audubon, renowned artist and ornithologist, lived for a time in Ste. Genevieve in the early 19th Century.
The April 2022 celebration will include an original musical titled “Hope Is a Shy Bird” staged by the Ste. Genevieve Theatre Guild. There will also be an exhibit of birdhouses made by county residents during the Audubon event. A naturalist-led bird walk will explore the sights and sounds Audubon enjoyed here. Additional activities are planned for the April 22-24 weekend, which also marks Audubon’s 237th birthday and Earth Day 2022.
This event is sponsored by the Sainte Genevieve Art Guild.
