All About Taxidermy Tuesday, October 25, 6:30–8 p.m.

Join Suzanne Rosenbeck from Artist Touch Taxidermy. Since the days of William Hornaday and Carl Akeley, taxidermy has been a scientific art: It requires practitioners not only to take accurate measurements and photos and make traces of the animals they’d like to mount, but to study the anatomy of those animals—all for the purpose of creating a specimen that is true to life. Admission is FREE but please RSVP so that we have a seat for you.
