    Writer Melissa Milgrom on Late Harvest and Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy

    Thursday November 20, 2014 / 6 – 7 pm

    It’s easy to dismiss taxidermy as a kitschy or morbid sideline, the realm of trophy fish and jackalopes or a throwback to the dusty diorama. Yet it is a world full of intrepid hunter-explorers, eccentric naturalists, and gifted museum artisans, all devoted to the paradoxical pursuit of creating the illusion of life. Learn from writer Melissa Milgrom about her fascination with the art form and its relation to the artwork in Late Harvest.
