Strange Creatures: The Art Of Unknown Animals

Best things in life are free

When new regions are explored and the animals in them discovered, how does the wider world get to experience these species? From the earliest days of exploration, art has been essential in representing creatures that are alien to people at home. The Strange Creatures exhibition will explore the world of animal representations, featuring the painting of a kangaroo by George Stubbs which was recently saved for the nation. It was painted following Captain Cook’s first “Voyage of Discovery” and is Europe’s first image of an Australian animal. Opening hours: Mon-Sat 13:00-17:00 This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed.
