The Museum of American Bird Art is Mass Audubon's art museum, offering exhibitions and programs that connect people and nature through art.
Staff museum professionals and teaching artists lead talks and tours for adult groups to explore the museum collections, highlight the changing exhibitions, and develop skills in a variety of visual and creative arts. We conduct presentations and workshops with leading nature artists and work with groups to customize programs on topics such as field sketching, nature photography, natural print-making, sculpting in clay. We present illustrated talks on the fascinating stories behind the artists who created the best of American bird art, from John James Audubon to Andy Warhol.
We also work with K-12 teachers and provide professional development workshops on integrating art and nature in the classroom to uphold Massachusetts State Curriculum Frameworks.
Many adult group programs take place at MABA's 121-acre sanctuary in Canton. Museum presenters also travel throughout Greater Boston and beyond to deliver programs at libraries, senior communities, outdoor locations and other venues.
