Ste. Genevieve’s art community will be celebrating in April 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 starting at 7:30am will explore the sights and sounds Audubon enjoyed here. Additional activities are planned for the April 22-24 weekend.
