Museum Monday videos feature stories from the museum collection and the history of John James Audubon State Park.
Join our curator, Heidi Taylor-Caudill, for a new Museum Monday video about our collection of John James Audubon’s calling cards and calling card case. From 1826 to 1838, Audubon worked tirelessly to sell himself as a respectable gentleman naturalist in order to convince people to subscribe to The Birds of America. As part of this effort, he used tools like the calling cards in our collection to convince potential subscribers to take a chance on his monumental project. Learn more about calling cards and their social importance in this video.
