Finding Sanctuary: Exploring Mass Audubon sites with Barry VanDusen
Barry VanDusen is the author of the 2020 book, Finding Sanctuary, about Mass Audubon's many wildlife sanctuaries. In this one-hour illustrated talk, Barry will share stories about the sanctuaries (he has visited all of them!) and also show paintings he has produced at those sites.

About the Event
During a 4 ½ year period (2015-2019), Barry visited all 61 of Mass Audubon’s public wildlife
sanctuaries, nature centers and museums, producing drawings and paintings at each location.
You’ll hear about his adventures exploring Mass Audubon properties all around Massachusetts,
and learn more about the approach Barry uses to meet the demands and challenges of working
on location. He’ll also show how field sketches and studies are used in the studio for larger,
more complex works. FINDING SANCTUARY, a book documenting the project, was published
by Mass Audubon in 2020. Join Barry in this celebration of the rich biological diversity in
Massachusetts and the Mass Audubon sanctuary system.
