Large & Small Galleries
unNATURAL HISTORIES is a group exhibition of works by artists utilizing materials and imagery from the natural world (animals, birds, fish, reptiles, and insects) in unexpected ways. Curated to foster dialogue between the arts and sciences, the show juxtaposes contemporary artworks with specimens from the university’s Slater Museum of Natural History.
Exhibiting artists are John Byrd, Wayne Chabre, Justin Gibbens, Ford Gilbreath, Lauren Grossman, Carolyn Krieg, Hugh Lentz, Alan Moe, and Jim Rittimann.
This exhibit was co-curated by Esther Luttikhuizen, Director of Kittredge Gallery, and Peter Wimberger, Acting Director of the Slater Museum of Natural History and Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Puget Sound.
