ANIMALS IN ART - BEASTS OF FAME AND FABLE

Humans are the only animals that communicate with art. But we love animals, and we especially love art about animals. Many creatures indeed are so important to us that we have imbued them with mythical abilities and magical symbolism that has greatly influenced much of our culture and religion.

Join us for a journey around the world and throughout history to appreciate how connected we are with the beasts of fame and fable and how we have cultivated these myths and fables to connect us to one another in art.
