Art by Animals


Grant Museum of Zoology | Rockefeller Building (link Map)
University Street | WC1E 6DE |

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Ticketing: Open

Do animals make art? This exhibition includes paintings by apes and elephants and examines whether they are artistic works or just pointless lines on a page. Placing their handiwork alongside animal specimens and historical documentation we explore why some animal creations are considered valuable and creative, while others are dismissed as meaningless.

Part of the Humanimals Season at the Grant Museum.
