Animal Kingdom

All Beasts Great & Small

Tue, September 5–Sat, October 28

Animals inspire artists to create in innumerable ways. From the flamingo to the peacock, their colors amaze.  Their textures are as diverse as the fur on a yak to the scale of a fish.  In motion, none is more graceful than the leopard or as teetering as a penguin and they range in form from a mammoth Blue Whale to a miniscule Patu Digua Spider.  Whether they are human companions, fierce hunters, or wanderers of the waves, we cannot escape our fascination with depicting their likeness in detail or in abstraction.  Animal Kingdom explores the wonderful, whimsical, and wild interpretations of animals through the mind of photographers, printmakers, sculptors and more.
