Discoverers Event – Taxidermy, Natural History Groups and Dioramas at Carnegie Museums
June 18, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Steve Rogers
Field collectors, taxidermists, foreground specialists, and diorama painters have made our museum’s natural history exhibits the gems that they are. Over the past 125 years a handful of preparators and artists have created outstanding taxidermy pieces and natural history dioramas. The techniques used to mount lifelike vertebrates, along with fabricated accessories, and to place them in a recreation of a fragment of the natural history world is an awe-inspiring art form.
